The Right Side of The Brain...

I've directed or produced several documentary films. I also recently edited my first book.

TWBYF_Poster_web Small.jpgTHE WORLD BEFORE YOUR FEET, my new documentary,  premiered in competition at SXSW in March 2018, where it received really amazing audience and critical response! It has now been acquired by Greenwich Entertainment. In fact, you can read the distribution announcement right here! We've enjoyed receiving many positive reviews and profiles. Check some out here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here. You can also go to the film's website or Facebook page and you can keep up to date with all the excitement!  We'll soon have news about its release in the weeks ahead!

MagicalUniverse_Poster_72dpi_small.jpgPreviously, I made the award-winning documentary MAGICAL UNIVERSE. The film is about a reclusive and eccentric 88-year old outsider artist who became my close friend for over a decade. It was released theatrically by IFC Films in nearly 20 cities in Winter 2014/2015 and garnered high-profile press coverage and incredibly impassioned audience support. The documentary was a Los Angeles Times and Village Voice Critic's Pick and was selected by the New York Times as recommended watching when it debuted on Netflix in 2015. You can now find it everywhere! — iTunes, NetflixAmazon Instant, Amazon UK, and special edition DVD. In 2016, Magical Universe was featured at the Louvre as part of the Barbie exhibit at the Musee Des Arts Decoratifs.

The Left Side Of The Brain...

EDITOR / CREATIVE DIRECTOR

I am the Creative Director, Supervising Editor, and Co-Founder of WHEELHOUSE CREATIVE. We produce many movie trailersfeaturettes, tribute montages, and fundraising pieces for our many Indie Film and TV clients.  (We work with most every indie distributor. We choose to not work on studio films.)

Prior to launching Wheelhouse, I edited trailers to some big Hollywood movies, studio franchises, and Oscar-winning films. I've edited montages for the Oscars.  I've edited  trailers for some of the biggest TV series. I've edited Bar Mitzvah videos. I’ve edited feature docs. I’ve edit-doctored narrative features.  I edited my friend's kickstarter video for his slurpee machine (it didn't get funded). I’ve been nom’d twice for an Emmy for editing. I've won Key Arts and Golden Trailer Awards for editing. (Fun fact: I've edited the trailers to six films that have won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film.)

Occasionally, someone even interviews me about editing. For example, movies.com and Sirius Entertainment Weekly.
