I am most drawn to dramatic crime thrillers (though I love a good dose of character-driven humor).  I've been honored to have my films screened all over the US and abroad, and for my work to be recognized at several festivals.  I am very proud of my contributions to Kids In The Spotlight, a charity dedicated to encouraging foster kids to tell their stories through film.

Filmmaking is as visceral a creative experience as writing, painting or acting. As in any art, planning is essential, and with a company of performers and craftspeople depending on you to meet the schedule, one has to make definitive choices on style, tone and form before principle photography. But on set, where all that counts is what’s going through the lens, your guide is your instinct. Whether it be a performance note, a shot composition, or you just lost a location and need to adapt quickly, it is your inner voice that shows you the way.
