I'm a New Jersey-raised & Los Angeles-based writer, director, and editor. My stuff has screened at The SAG Foundation’s Short Film Showcase, the NYC International Film Festival, and the Lone Star Film Festival.

In 2013, I graduated cum laude from Boston University with bachelors' degrees in Film & Television and English. My films Deterrence and Good Taste were both Special Jury Mentions at the Boston Student Film Fest.

In 2016, Zero Gravity Management (Ozark, The Accountant, The Cooler) optioned my screenplay Extractors that I conceived alongside Cinema Thread's Hallivis Brothers.

In 2017, my screenplay Vox Pop (about the conception of reality TV in the 1990s) was a Semifinalist in the Cannes Golden Plume Screenwriting Competition.

In 2018, my feature script adaptation of Good Taste was a 2nd Rounder in the Austin Film Festival Script Competition and a Quarterfinalist in the Screencraft Comedy Screenplay Contest, the Scriptapalooza Screenwriting Competition, and the Finish Line Script Competition.

When I'm not knee-deep in tomfoolery (sorry, Tom) at Brova Comedy, I help maintain LA's premiere revival screening aggregate Revival Hub LA.

Otherwise, I'm eating behind you at Los Tacos.
