My independent film production company, Cardinal Flix, just completed 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"). We are currently entering it into the festival circuit. 

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 recently concluded the festival circuit and won "Best Director of a Feature Film" at the Madrid International Film Festival, "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 has distribution through Freestyle Digital Media and can be found streaming on all major cable and VOD platforms.

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. It is currently streaming on Amazon.
