I represented Strut at this year’s Soho Film Festival with the show creator Misha Calvert and actress Christina Toth. I produced the pilot for this female driven comedy. It has now screened at over 15 film festivals and won numerous awards including Best Screenwriting and Best Comedy at the Hollyweb Film Festival, Best Pilot at the New Zealand Web Festival and Best Web Series at the NYC Indie Film Festival, Hollywood Comedy Shorts and Terminus Film Festivals. Strut was also a part of the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival’s Creators Market. Needless to say, I am a proud producer.
I had the privilege of attending Telluride’s Mountainfilm Festival this year. Not only is this festival located in a beautiful setting, but it also hosts an incredible lineup of important social and environmental documentaries from around the world.
This was one of my all time favorite film festival experiences. Although I saw some incredibly heartbreaking documentaries, there were some very important discussions taking place during this festival. I return to New York filled with fresh inspiration and conviction that film can change the world.
In the fall of 2017, I spent two month in Europe producing a documentary that followed DJ/music producer Gramatik. Here’s a short trailer from his show in Paris at the Zenith.
Here is the trailer for the short documentary that I directed, Taking New Steps.
Last fall, I traveled to Detroit to direct this video about Ford’s collaboration with Kode with Klossy.
One of my absolute favorite on camera acting experiences was being a small part of the incredible cast of Diane.
Diane opens in theater, and will be released on VOD this Friday, March 29th. Do yourself a favor and see this beautiful film!
This fall I traveled to Vermont for ITVFest with the pilot that I produced, Misha Calvert’s Strut.
Strut has now won numerous awards including Best Web Series at Hollywood Comedy Shorts and the Terminus Conference + Festival, Best Comedy and Screenwriting at the Hollyweb Festival and Best Pilot at the New Zealand Web Fest.
I just spent a week in Israel directing a short documentary, Taking New Steps.
Stay tuned for more about this project!
My Writer’s Group is presenting a series of works-in-progress on June 25th at Under St. Marks (94 St. Marks Place, New York, NY). I’m having a comedy series that I’ve been writing read, and I'm directing three of the scripts.
I have two projects in the Tribeca Film Festival this year.
I produced the pilot for Misha Calvert's Strut which will be a part of this year's Tribeca Film Festival's N.O.W. Creator's Lab. Strut is a female driven comedy, and Misha is a powerhouse who's currently developing 9 different projects. She's definitely someone to watch!
