Tue, 17 Jan 2017 21:17:32 +0000I recently appeared on the podcast Filmwax Radio. And while I’ve appeared in media before, this one felt a bit like a rite of passage. Any New York filmmaker of note has appeared on it over the years and I’ve listened to many episodes. Adam’s cat sat in my lap for a few minutes as […]
Wed, 15 Jun 2016 15:37:20 +0000Flying out to LA I knew one thing was certain, I would return a changed person – baptized by the fact that I could now, officially, call myself a feature filmmaker.

Pictured, Alexandre “Diesel” Varela and Kristine Kruta, who wrote and performed our original score in a whirlwind […]

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 10:46:15 +0000I’ve been waiting to say something like this for years. My first feature film, “72 Hours: a Brooklyn Love Story?” will make its World Premiere in competition at the LA Film Festival. It is a tremendous honor and I couldn’t be more proud.

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 04:17:40 +0000After a recent two-week trip to Morocco in which I shot several thousand images, I have much to share. The question is format.
