The story went as it so often does; and after several fires, accidents, and visits from the local authorities, it was determined that he was irrevocably and hopelessly destined to be a filmmaker.

He has recently completed the S16mm short ERIC’S DATE and the experimental TREE.
His latest short, THE LONG WAY has played at festivals such as the NEW YORK INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL, THE CAPE COD INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL.
As a writer, he has had fiction published in THE SEA LETTER as well as NON-BINARY REVIEW and he reguarly writes film criticism for MUBI NOTEBOOK. He has also been featured in SENSES OF CINEMA.
He is currently in development on his first feature, HOME, which has earned sponsorship from MOVIEMAKER MAGAZINE as well as being a qualifier at CINEMART and a selected script at the OAXACA FILM FESTIVAL.
He is a selected artist fellow 2019-2020 by the state of Connecticut.
