Filmmaker | Author | Educator

Welcome to my new web site!


This is my new home for all things creative. As a film producer I have been lucky enough to work with actor Mark Hamill, and produce the short film titled, “The Halloween Pranksta.”As an author, I have written three young adult novels, and I am presently completing the first book of a Dark Fantasy novel series titled, “Virgin Falls.” As an educator, I am fortunate enough to teach animation and fine arts at the School of Visual Arts, in New York City. Exploring and sharing creative ideas has been a lifelong pursuit for me, and I see no end in sight. Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions about my work, or if you would just like to say hello.
