Greetings!  I'm a writer, director, editor, and all around good guy living in Los Angeles. Born and raised in upstate NY, I moved to Los Angeles after college and began working extensively in the film and television industry on everything from big-budget commercials to indie features. In 2012, I joined the roster of The Masses, a filmmaking collective started by Matt Amato, Jon Ramos, and the late Heath Ledger. At The Masses, I honed my skills and experimented, directing numerous music videos which were featured on acclaimed music websites such as Pitchfork, The Fader, and Filter. In the branded arena, I've created content for Adidas, the burlesque superstar, Dita Von Teese, the design-duo The Haas Brothers, and fashion brands such as Elle and Esquire among others. In 2015, I edited Dogwalker, a short film by Kimberly Sherman which premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. My own short film, Good Boy, recently had its west coast premiere at the June 2017 NewFilmmakers Los Angeles showcase of LGBTQ+ films. Right now, I'm developing my first feature, The Sleepwalker's Travel Guide, to shoot in summer of 2018. Say hello!
