In 2014, I made the 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. The film won several film festival awards and subsequently was released theatrically by IFC Films in Winter 2014/2015.

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. You can now find it on iTunes, Amazon Instant, IFC Unlimited, 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.

I made the feature documentary WHO IS HENRY JAGLOM? It premiered at AFI Film Festival, won Best Doc at Slamdance, aired on PBS's documentary series POV, is available on Special Edition DVD and was recently spotted on FilmStruck (R.I.P.) Get it on Netflix DVD tonight!

I am the producer of TRUE NEW YORK, a documentary anthology film that was the top-selling "Short Film" on iTunes in Spring 2019. One of the films featured in True New York is my own ONE TRACK MIND, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and aired on PBS. (Fun fact: I also edited a book on the same subject called One-Track Mind: Drawing The New York Subway. The book was the recipient of a 2019 New York City Book Award. Find it everywhere books are sold. Makes a great gift. Only $23 on Amazon!)

I produced two ESPN 30for30 documentaries: Kid Danny and The Great Trade Robbery (also edited this one). Both are great!


I've also directed a couple narrative shorts, including this comedy Claire Makes It Big. It won several festival awards, was short-listed for an Oscar (Best Short) and is in frequent rotation on Direct TV's ShortsHD Channel and on Shorts.TV. Check your local listings!

In my editing career, I've edited 100+ theatrical trailers, including those for some of the most essential indie, foreign, and documentary films of our times. (Fun fact: I've edited the trailers to six films that have won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film.) I’ve edited multiple feature documentaries. I’ve edit-doctored narrative features. I've edited Oscar montages, Lifetime Achievements, and In Memoriams. I’ve been nom’d twice for Emmys, and won multiple Key Arts and Golden Trailer Awards.



I speak regularly about editing, cinematic storytelling, documentary filmmaking, and of course trailers. I have been a guest lecturer or visiting instructor at Columbia University Journalism School, NYU Journalism, Montclair State, SUNY Purchase, Rollins College, City College of New York, LIU Brooklyn, SVA, The College of New Jersey, Urban Arts (for NYC high schools), the NY Film And Video Council, and DCTV. I am a two-time Special Visiting Guest Lecturer for ChileDoc (CCDoc) in Santiago, Chile. I also have frequently been invited to be a moderator or juror at major film festivals and industry events.
