About Me

. . . may my words get into all kinds of hands.

I was born in Leningrad, Russia; I’ve lived most of my life in New York.

Half-Orange/Half-Apple. I am the pulp of those two cities.

. . . but lets laugh instead.


I graduated New York University (B.F.A. Film & Television); and while I am proud of my technical film knowledge, my writing, editing, and directing abilities, I treasure most my commitment to inspirit any creative famiIy I work with, furthered by my recent fifteen month trip around the world.

I drove six months across our country in an old, two-door hatchback with more hiccups than miles on its odometer.

I returned to my birthplace, soaking as stranger in an unfamiliar, ancestral echo; I traversed twenty countries by foot and car and bus and boat and train and plane and spaceship and horse (spaceship and horse not included).

. . . my worldwalk ended last autumn when I married one of those restless motorbikes at an intersection in Vietnam; with two ankle fractures and an orchard of questions, I returned to New York.

I had been at the movies for fifteen months. I had not seen many films, but I sat, slept, walked and wept — and laughed and smiled all the more — through one big one, for my adventure had been the best picture I had ever seen.

I am eager for my sequel — but only I can write it. I’ve been shaken and stirred by new places, new faces; and I am still traveling within my own unsolved self.

I am available for all kinds of creative endeavors: features, shorts, documentaries, music videos, fashion films, photography assignments, and travelogues.




. . . write me, you apples and oranges.

I have been in the industry since 2012.
