My independent film production company, Cardinal Flix, is in post-production for a feature film I wrote and directed called, "A Stage of Twilight," starring Karen Allen ("Raiders of the Lost Ark," "Animal House") and William Sadler ("Die Hard 2," "The Shawshank Redemption").

In August 2020, we locked a feature I directed and co-wrote called “Life After You,” starring Gary Perez (“Homeland,” “The Sopranos”), Florencia Lozano ("Narcos," “One Life To Live”), and Kathryn Erbe ("Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "Stir of Echoes"). We are currently touring the festival circuit and recently won "Best Feature Film" and "Best Lead Actress" at the Nice International Film Festival, and "Special Jury Remi for a First Feature" and "Best Lead Actress" at WorldFest-Houston. The film is nominated for "Best Director," "Best Feature," "Best Original Screenplay," and "Outstanding Leading Actress" at the Madrid International Film Festival.

In 2018, I wrote, directed, and produced the short film, “‘A’ My Name Is." The film went on to tour the festival circuit internationally and was awarded "Best WNY Short" at the Buffalo International Film Festival, and “Best Lead Actress In A Short Film” at the Nice International Film Festival, the Nova Star Awards, as well as the Young Entertainer Awards.

My short film "Family Matters" recently won the Ridgefield Independent Film Festival's "Script-2-Screen" competition in CT, which comes with a $25,000 production services grant through Sacred Heart University. We are currently in pre-production and plan on shooting in fall 2021 in accordance with COVID safety protocols and regulations.

I am a member of the Playwrights/Directors Unit at the Actors Studio in New York City.
