Slightly pretentious b/w self-portrait with Hollywood lighting. 

I’m a Brooklyn based director and screenwriter who focuses on stories that draw out the quirky core of characters to reveal the authentic seams of relationships and the raw truth of what it is to be human.

After working in recording studios and touring as a musician, including a stint on a major label, I worked as a creative at top ad agencies in NYC before launching my directing career with a 30+ film campaign for Google spanning three countries in Africa.

I’ve written and directed narrative shorts that have screened and been awarded internationally and my screenplays have placed at major competitions, including the Austin Film Festival.
