ABOUT:

Undergrad degree from Pepperdine University in Theatre Directing and a Film Directing degree from the Los Angeles Film School.  Years of indie film in L.A. and then Austin, TX where I currently live with my wife and daughters. Written 8 feature screenplays (2 produced), 1 Sitcom Pilot, Produced 3 features, Produced 1 TV pilot, Written 1 Full length stageplay, Produced 100+ media projects for Super Happy Clients and was the Director of Photography for 1 feature. Co-founded Matter Media Studios. Was the mobile apps Project Manager for the Marvel Unlimited, BET Awards ‘13, Caesars Total Rewards and more…

Why:

I’m driven by the idea that story both challenges and fulfill us… Writing is great, but in the end it’s nothing until it’s produced – so I also need other people. And I love working with people that become a dysfunctional family all driving towards some crazy end in a relentless medium that can’t be done alone and needs people from all walks of life to bring it to fruition.  I also like coloring on the floor with my daughter.

News:

I wrote and directed the short films MAREA (THE TIDE), a migrant rescue story in Malta, and the award winning short film JATKU LEIBA about a single mother in Estonia. I produced the short POLLUTION that premiered at the Cannes Film Corner, and the feature BINDLESTIFFS that won the Audience Award at  Slamdance and was bought by Kevin Smith. I directed a silly little web series called BROKEN BONDS. I co-wrote/produced the features AN ORDINARY FAMILY and DRAGON DAY, which I also DP’d. I won a Telly for some shorts I produced featuring the puppets, THE BARKLES. I make an Espresso every morning (or 4).
