I am an independent filmmaker with a specialization in writing and directing micro-budget films. I earned my MFA in motion picture production from the University of Miami and while in graduate school, I worked at the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Film Archive where I organized and created footage packages for documentaries that aired on ESPN and PBS. My thesis film, American Karoshi, screened at various film festivals across the country and garnered awards such as Best Micro Budget Film at the American International Film Festival in Ann Arbor, Michigan and an Award of Merit at The Best Shorts Competition in La Jolla, California.
My latest feature screenplay won best Breakout Screenplay at the Oaxaca Film Festival. I returned to my undergraduate alma mater, Towson University, in 2011 as a visiting assistant professor, teaching courses in introductory and intermediate film production, as well as history of film. I have also taught courses in screenwriting and digital film production at Dickinson College and currently I teach directing, screenwriting, and cinematography courses at Jacksonville University. I live fifteen minutes from the beach with my gorgeous wife, Ali, so life is good.
