Editor, actor and screenwriter in New York City, New York

About Jeffrey

I'm a multiple award winning editor, working since 2005 at Nightline on ABC, but my passion is for writing, directing and acting in narrative fiction films.

I have a 19-minute short horror film, JIMBO, currently in post-production. I wrote it, directed, produced, edited, and acted in it. It was shot on Red Epic in September, and is nearing completion now.

My documentary, MODWORLD, released last year, played several festivals.

I also directed, art directed, shot, edited, and animated a trippy psychedelic music video for "Fools Parade" by Trumpeter Swan, all done with an iPhone 4s, and edited traditionally. It's gotten over 16,000 hits on YouTube, but watch it on Vimeo instead.

I have a bit over two years of actor training, mostly with the Bob McAndrew Studio, but also with Ted Zurkowski and Mauricio Bustamante of The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.

I've got several projects in the scripting pipeline at this moment including a "dra-medy" web series, and several feature length films including a 7-kids-in-a-cabin horror, an expanded version of JIMBO, and a near-future dystopian-society science fiction.
