Just a Jersey boy who became a Brooklyn man after a
4-year pit stop at RIT's School of Film and Animation.
Upon my arrival to the Big Apple, I worked the streets for
years (as a Production Assistant) before becoming a true boss (an Assistant Director), all while writing features and pilots in an attempt to boycott sleep altogether.

A jaded therapist questioning her own mental health is summoned to her family’s secluded cottage to confront the lake monster that spared her life two decades earlier.
"Regarding the initial portrayal of your main character, Selena, audiences could struggle to connect and understand the reasons behind her disillusioned, existential, and depressed state. This leads to another concern regarding Selena’s likability, particularly in the first half of the script. Ultimately, the better we like her, the more we’ll want to root for her character and engage with her journey."
- A Black List Reader
"That Black List reader is an idiot. Your so-called 'Unlikable Female Protagonist' is one of the best portrayals of a woman written by a man that I've ever read."

We Were Survivors
Short Screenplay, 13 pages
A post-apocalyptic teenage love story gets even more complicated when the last people alive realize they’ve been lied to about what remains of their future.
"As it turns out this has something to add to the apocalypse genre. And right now it's something that seems a bit too plausible. They aren't looking out for zombies or anything like that. What's chasing them is death brought all that much closer by a virus with no cure. This takes the apocalypse where it always should have gone. This isn't a playground for Mad Max types. This is it. This is the end.
We haven't seen things like this since 'The Day After' and 'On the Beach.'
The story starts with the usual tropes of ordinary people walking out into the wasteland like badasses. But in the final scenes they're reduced to people just waiting to die. It's grim but also emotional and there's a dark beauty to it."
