I am the Founder and CEO of Stage 32. I started my creative career as an actor in New York and moved into screenwriting and producing upon moving to Los Angeles. On the screenwriting side, I am represented by David Greenblatt of Greenlit Creative. A film based on my script, THE END GAME, is currently in development at Covert Media.
As a producer, I've worked on such films as the Sundance favorite (and Best Screenplay winner) ANOTHER HAPPY DAY written and directed by Sam Levinson, the documentary CRUTCH, the upcoming RAIN-BEAU'S END and a variety of short films.
I am the the author of CROWDSOURCING FOR FILMMAKERS: INDIE FILM AND THE POWER OF THE CROWD, the very first book on film crowdsourcing, published by Focal Press/Routledge under the American Film Market (AFM) Presents banner. (http://amzn.to/2zdJnrC)
I have been a teacher, mentor, moderator and panelist at such festivals, conferences and institutions as Sundance, Tribeca, Cannes, SXSW, Raindance, AFM, PGA, WGA, Columbia, Harvard and more on the subjects of filmmaking, producing, screenwriting, independent film, entrepreneurship, business, social media, marketing, crowdfunding and crowdsourcing.
Prior to launching Stage 32, I was the founder, publisher and editor of RAZOR Magazine, a national men's lifestyle magazine which had a readership of 1.5 million at its peak. I was also a sports radio host on a variety of programs on ESPN and Fox affiliates. Additionally, I have appeared on MSNBC, CNBC, Fox News, and other news and entertainment outlets speaking on the film and tech industries. Oh, and I was once named one of People Magazine's Most Eligible Bachelors (no lie).
