I am an independent lone-wolf independent filmmaker with a few awards on my shelf for Strong Arm of the Law - a short cine-poem western made in 2013, and Send Me Your Smile - A Desert Monologue, in 2014.
I love westerns but am also venturing into the world of the supernatural with a project for later in 2016.
In the meantime I also have 2 other westerns in pre-production for filming this summer in Arizona.
I love to collaborate with story tellers and screenwriters and music composers.
I prefer to work with a small team, friendly cast, tight crew, natural light and sound. Nothing too heavy. Serious work but fun.
