I have been making movies since 2004. My most recent
directing credits include short films KISSING DREW and SURVIVAL GUIDE, as well
as commercial and music video pieces you can peruse above.
At the moment, I am busy developing my first feature length
film [currently] called PORTRAIT OF A DARLING while keeping busy with more
bite-sized pieces for [highly worthwhile] Canadian not-for-profits.
I am also a credited theatre producer and [former] *business guy* [the details of which we’ll discuss over our first Americano together].
