About Me

I am a Horror Filmmaker, about to launch my fourth feature film.

For a glimpse of my style, check out the spec-trailer I wrote & directed for "Kiss before the Slaughter" here:

I graduated magna cum laude from USC and spent the next 4 years pouring blood, sweat, tears, and grants from Panavision and Kodak into my directorial debut feature film FINALE (, which sold to Image Entertainment and was released worldwide on DVD.

I was then hired to take over "Gnome Alone" for Lionsgate -- I wrote and directed additional sequences of the film, including an entirely new climax and opening. Check out the trailer here:

Next, I was hired to direct pickups on the $1.4M horror film "Discarnate" produced by Harald Kloser, of "White House Down" and "Independence Day Resurgence". I was also promoted to Co-Producer on the film.

Most recently, I was hired to Co-Produce pickups on a $1.5M feature Sci-Fi film "White Space", and then to Produce the Dark Fantasy feature "Moon Garden" -- both shot on glorious 35mm film.

I am interested in meeting passionate artists, models and actresses for future work in film.

Keep indie SINema alive!
