My forte is working with actors, specifically comedic actors. I started in front of the camera, attended PCS in Manhattan. For a quick laugh take a look at two clips from my teen acting years.
The first feature film I wrote and directed SMILING FISH & GOAT ON FIRE won The Discovery Award at The Toronto International Film Festival and was distributed domestically by IDP-Goldywn.
The inspiration for my next narrative feature, BROOKLYN LOBSTER, starring Academy Award nominee Danny Aiello and Emmy Award Winner Jane Curtin, came from my own family's lobster shop in Brooklyn.
The film premiered at Toronto International Film Festival, was officially presented by Martin Scorsese and domesticlaly distributed by Netflix.
The Scorsese contact came through NYU film school, where I was very fortunate to have received the inaugural Martin Scorsese Young Filmmaker Scholarship. Upon graduation Scorsese invited me to observe on the set of KUNDUN in Morroco.

All of the promo/ commercial work on this site I have produced and directed. Depending on budget size I may shoot, direct edit and PA the same gig. There's no crying in baseball or low budget productions!
I am proficient in the Adobe Creative Cloud suite, editing in Premiere, creating titles in After Effects.
Happy to discuss how I can create digital content for your company or brand.
Just shoot me an email and let's begin pre-production!
