About Tim

In my acting days, my braces locked with a girl’s in Meatballs 2 and I got licked to death in the horror film, Society. And still, no Oscars!

As a writer/director, I've made an award winning short & web-series. My first feature film, Dirty Beautiful, played in 67 film fests and won 48 awards, including 15 best in fest awards. Dirty Beautiful is now available on Amazon, Tubi, Vudu, Apple TV, Google Play and others.

I am currently developing new projects under my Doggie Dream Productions banner. My newest project Stuck was among the top 1% of scripts on Stage 32 for all of 2021.

Unique traits: I can gargle almost any song upon request.
