Excited to be participating in this year's Visible Poetry Project, an initiative partnering thirty filmmakers with thirty poets to create visual interpretations of original and classic poems. The Project will release one short film interpretation of a poem per day for the thirty days of National Poetry Month (April).

Here is the 2018 trailer:


My short film End of Season is currently screening as part of the NYWIFT Fall Shorts Festival.

As part of its 40th anniversary celebration, NYWIFT has partnered with Indevue to showcase the work of its membership through an online film festival, which will run online for public viewing November 1st-17th, 2017.


My feature project Magic Window was one of three scripts selected for Filmshop's Breakthrough Series this year.

This is a curated industry showcase of some of the strongest work being made by members of the Filmshop filmmaking collective, taking place at the IFP Media Center on Saturday October 21. Industry guests include documentarian and DCTV Co-Executive Director Jon Alpert, playwright and screenwriter Aurin Squire (This is Us), and director Marc Webb ((500) Days of Summer, The Amazing Spider-Man).

Featured projects range from works-in-progress to fully-produced narrative and documentary shorts, features, and series and feature screenplays. The event also functions as a meeting point and marketplace for filmmakers and industry guests to view these projects.


The online film magazine Film Inquiry recently published a piece about Arts and Crafts.
