BIO

I am a visual artist and award-winning filmmaker.  Some of my experimental/narrative shorts have appeared in Williamsburg Film Festival, Martha's Vineyard Film Festival, Millennium Theatre, NYC downtown shorts, Iceland Film Festival and Toronto Indie Shorts Festival. I have completed one feature length documentary titled "House of Bones"- a personal story on my family and the house in which we once lived. THE HUNT FOR GOOD AMERICANS film/video sketch and art work which Abigail Pope and I created together appeared in Westport Gallery (MA), Underline Gallery (NYC) and The Drilling Co. Theatre (NYC). Currently I am in the midst of screening/working the festival circuit with a film about a Haitian Voodoo priest I have followed for 3 years, MONSIEUR le PRÉSIDENT -which is world-premiering at DOCNYC Nov. 14th under the viewfinder section (only 10 films are chosen for their unique directorial vision) http://www.monsieurlepresidentfilm.com.

I am currently editing a film titled DIMKA-(an intimate look into a man becoming a woman).  My work is collected in odds and ends, somewhat journal-like and combined memory, it tends to probe the personal and hopes to stretch people in how they see and think. I often film alone because I seek intimate connections with my characters. My hope is to meld fiction with non-fiction/documentary style. My work includes theatre, photography, mixed media and performance. I like the outcasts of the world, those who live on the periphery.
