about    

I’m an actor, writer, & director from the Hudson Valley.

I’m a graduate of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas who’s been working professionally in the film industry for the past fifteen years. 

My work includes a wide range of media platforms including short films, documentaries, music videos, virtual reality, theatre, and feature-length films. 

Currently, I’m working as a Senior Producer for the nation's largest publisher— Dotdash Meredith, finishing post-production on What Are We Doing Here (my next short film), teaching on-camera acting at Rutgers University, and living in Brooklyn with my partner Alex, all while I obsess over what my Letterboxd says about me as a person.

INTERDISCIPLINARITY, or:
"Okay...but what do you really do?"

That's what everyone says to me. Or— That’s not a brand,” “Jack of all trades,” “Pick a thing.” But here’s the truth: my art forms feed off each other.

As a director, I know how to relate and communicate with someone feeling the pressures of working in front of the camera. 
As an actor, I understand the nuances of performance need for wide shots versus close-ups.
As a writer, I leave space for magic to unfold.

I light scenes as a cinematographer, edit to captivate audiences, and produce with respect for time and budget. I'm not trying to master every craft; I thrive on collaboration. I've honed what I need to enhance my core disciplines as an indie filmmaker.

Look— if I was out here trying to be a great ballerina/sous chef/archeologist, I'd understand the criticism.
(Although I'd still go for it cus that's a badass combo.)

At the end of the day, I'm a storyteller, offering every tool in my kit to connect with our audience.

And so far, I've been lucky enough to have some success in each...

As a director my clients have included Google, Reebok, Food & Wine, InStyle Magazine, The United Way, & Rutgers University, among others.

In 2016, I was selected for Studio4's Masterclass with James Franco, where I co-directed a feature-length horror film, Sleepaway Slasher (Available on Tubi.)


Most recently, my work as a producer and editor was nominated for a Webby Award in the Diversity & Inclusion category. 

I wrote and directed my latest short film, What Are We Doing Here, which was selected for the New York No Limits Summit and released in January 2024.
