Worked professionally with Betty Thomas (John Tucker Must Die, Can't Hardly Wait), Douglas McGrath (Infamous, Bullets Over Broadway) and Lucy Walker (The Devil's Playground).
Killer Films in NYC was a terrific training ground. They worked me to the bone and I came back for seconds! There's no doubt that was the best place to learn what it takes to make a good film on a low budget.
I try to carry that over in any project I'm a part of. Directing the film OFFICE BEAST, the Script Supervisor said, "I think of you like the Wolf from Pulp Fiction. 'If I am curt with you, it's because time is a factor. I think fast, I talk fast and I need you guys to act fast." He found my favorite character in the film!
Two of my most recent films currently on the festival circuit are Vanessa Rising and Living Under Linda's Desk. I edited on the feature film Night Fliers directed by Sara St. Martin Lynne and it premiered to SOLD OUT audiences at Frameline June 20, 2009. That's awesome!
And hey, check out my current award-winning novels, PRIZEFIGHTER EN MI CASA and FEELS LIKE HOME
As always, rock the word!
