As Producer, pre-production experience includes overseeing two successful crowdfunding campaigns; budgeting; casting; storyboarding; scouting locations; scheduling; overseeing Production Designer, Director of Photography, Script Supervisor, Props Master, Set Dresser, Costumer, Stylist, Special Effects Master, Stunt Coordinator, Craft Services.
I’ve worked on set as Director, First Assistant Director, Productions Assistant. Duties have included talent-crew liaison; wrangle talent, echo; lock up; operate clapper; coordinate crews; in charge of paperwork and radios; equipment transportation; run supplies; breakdown; stand-in/background acting.
I'm currently working as a background actor, having appeared as a regular on Great News, as well as many other television series and a few feature films
I've created a one-hour primetime supernatural/mystery/action/coming-of-age/dramedy series titled Arcturo and a one-hour dramedy/mystery series Tomorrow Waits For No One. I self-produced the pilot episode, which premiered in 2009. We shot it for $800 (no, no missing zeros), mostly with people who'd never made a film. I love soap operas and have been hooked on them since I was a toddler.
I'm currently trying to get the treatment into the hands of Hollywood decision-makers. Tomorrow Waits For No One's gripping storylines, compelling mystery, dynamic characters, and absurdist comedy will appeal to a very broad audience.
Both shows would fit well in the lineup of networks such as The CW, TNT, or USA.
I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and am honestly thrilled to live in LA again, after a 27-year absence.
