After spending years working in media education, digital content and broadcast journalism on the east coast, Kali decided to move to Los Angeles and delve head first into movie making as a Directing Fellow at Chapman University, where he was selected as an O.L. Halsell Scholar which allowed him to collaborate with Oscar-winning producer Cathy Schulman. His award-winning short films have screened in film festivals at home and abroad, been exhibited in programs for domestic abuse education and centers for at risk youth, and even premiered at Times Square in New York. Currently, he is working on a pair of screenplays and finishing up post-production on his first feature length documentary Thumbwarrior.
