Born in Massachusetts as an only child I’ve always been imaginative and from an early age found I had a talent for illustrating comics as well as creative writing and story telling. Creative arts took a backseat as I became an adult and went to work.

20 years later as technology made movie making more accessible I decided to pick up my IPhone, grab my friend and his black mustang and make my first short film, The Car, and haven’t looked back since. 10 short films, several comedy skits and music videos later with my latest project a full length movie currently in production.
