|Location||N.Y., N.Y., United States|
|Introduction||I'm a filmmaker out in NYC with three narrative shorts, a few docs, and a feature screenplay to my credit. My films have traveled the festival circuit, picked up some awards, pissed off a few people, scared some, and made others laugh.
3 of my shorts are now screening at undergroundfilm.com, including my latest, Faceless. Faceless screened at festivals all over the world and picked up a few awards including, Most Disturbing Film at the International SciFi and Horror Film Festival sponsored by Lionsgate Films.
I just finished my first novel - a children's fantasy/adventure called The Kringle Khronicles Volume 1: The Legend of Winterdale. And that's why I'm here - to chronicle the book from its humble beginning as a manuscript on my computer all the way through its publishing and beyond.
