I'm a film director and sometimes producer living and working in Connecticut. My background is in VFX and I maintain a hands-on attitude through the entire process. I believe in quality of content and focus on product over process.
I love science fiction, comedy, or anything inventive and will look at queries for good, low-budget scripts, especially in those genres. I have experience with VFX, kids, and animals.
Though I've been working consistently with Synthetic Cinema here in CT, I'm always interested in new opportunities and making connections elsewhere. I list only feature directing credits here, but a full filmography can be seen on imdb or my website.
