I am a director and screenwriter.
While in my teens I directed two features, “Flesh Freaks” (2000) and “Kill Them and Eat Them” (2003). Rue Morgue magazine called “Flesh Freaks” “an impressive little film that defies its minuscule budget,” and Uncut Magazine called it “an entertaining exercise in well-executed splatter.” The Baltimore Sun said “Kill Them and Eat Them” was “an experience not to be missed.”
Since then, I have written and directed several short films including “Guts of the Gods” (2005), “Legend of the Seven Bloody Torturers” (2007), and “A Friend of the Devil” (2012).
My screenplay “Sapien” placed in the top 13 scripts in The Blood List's New Blood Horror Screenplay Contest 2014 and the quarter-finals of the 2014 Final Draft Big Break Screenplay Contest. It was chosen as a Notable Project by Amazon Studios.
“Deserter,” written in a collaboration with Hugh Gibson, was a semi-finalist in the 2015 Bluecat Screenplay Competition.
I have edited and created visual content for a large number of corporate and commercial clients. My dramatic editing credits include the feature “The Basement” (2011).
My work as an illustrator includes “Pipe Dreams,” a government-commissioned comic book designed to teach children about water safety, for which I won the Canadian Public Relations Society’s Gold Award for Print Projects.
I am married and I live in Toronto.
