About

I  just locked a feature I directed, produced, 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"). The story is centered around a suburban family's struggle with the death of their 19-year-old son following an overdose of heroin that was laced with fentanyl. 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.

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, “Best Lead Actress In A Short Film” at the Nice International Film Festival, the Nova Star Awards, as well as the Young Entertainer Awards, and was nominated for “Best Director Of A Short Film” at the Madrid International Film Festival.

I am a member of the Playwrights/Directors Unit at the Actors Studio in New York City. My play, "A Stage of Twilight" was part of the 2019 Pipeline Series at the Dorset Theatre Festival in VT. The play has also had readings at the Berkshire Theatre Group in Massachusetts in 2018, and the Cherry Lane Theatre in 2017. I have since turned the play into a feature-length film that I will direct in June/July 2021 starring Karen Allen ("Raiders of the Lost Ark," "Animal House") and William Sadler ("Shawshank Redemption," "Die Hard II").
