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, is on the festival circuit, having so far played in 41 fests. It has won 16 awards including multiple Best Film statues. It's a good feeling when I think back on how many times my little indie film might have imploded. :)
Dirty Beautiful is now available on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/movies/details/Dirty_Beautiful?id=bKasfWeL... The film will soon be available on Amazon, iTunes and Vudu.
