An actor, director, writer and executive producer in NYC + LA.
I'm currently working on some exciting new projects:
I'm in THE POLKA KING (a new film with Jack Black and Jenny Slate) that was released on Netflix in January 2018.
I'm directing a dramatic short film called "Hatched" written by Kimberlea Kressal. We begin shooting in late summer 2018.
I'm executive producing and writing a new animated children's TV show called CAPE KIDS. I also co-created the show and designed all of the original artwork. You can catch the show on PBS/KET in 2019.
Finally, I am constantly directing commercials for various national brands. You can check out some of my work under the directing tab.
Thanks for stopping by -
