Raised in Los Angeles I started work as a professional union actor at 16. In my 30s I was the Artistic Director for a theater company and produced 32 stage plays in three years. Even with audience seating at capacity I realized I could reach a much bigger audience through film, and began writing, directing and producing feature films. I continue making feature films to tell stories that audiences wouldn't hear otherwise. My life mission is to help people understand themselves and other people better through film. It gives me great pleasure assisting other filmmakers in successfully making their feature films.
