Writer, Director, Producer
Hey! I’m one of the 2017 IFP Narrative lab fellows; New York based racially white/Caucasian but culturally Middle Eastern/Latino/Spanish/Jewish producer/writer/director. I recently produced Golden Lion Winner & Oscar Nominee writer/director Milcho Manchevski's “Bikini Moon" starring Condola Rashad (Showtime: “Billions”) and Sarah Goldberg (HBO: “Barry”); Jerome Foundation grant recipient and GLAAD supported feature film’ “The Garden Left behind” starring 5-time Golden Globe winner Ed Asner and Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs); “Tom in America" starring Academy nominees Burt Young and Sally Kirkland; and Sundance Short program alumni Doug Karr’s feature narrative: “Art Machine" starring Golden Globe nominee Joey Lauren Adams, Christopher Abbott (HBO's “Girls"), Joseph Cross (Gus Van Sant's Milk), and Jessica Szohr.
My directing projects focus on Jewish values, minority subjects, family dramas, immigrating and counter cultures. My work has been screened in a long list of film festivals internationally including my first and latest music video that premiered in Refinery29 and became a NYTimes sensation, screening in over 30 film festivals around the globe winning many awards. I also served as a film jury in several film festivals internationally, am the founder of a unique crowdfunding model running on eBay and am currently writing a book about independent film producing. Finally, music is a big part of my life. Who are you? Reach out.
