Me

 

About 5' 11", terribly beautiful, piercing and hypnotic green

eyes, charisma to burn, voice of a songbird, dances like an

angel, not as skillful a surgeon as he brags about,

unfortunate tattoo of a cobra that runs the length of his

body, bedwetter, mean breakfast drunk, unreliable,

toothless, dizzy and probably dangerous. Hire him to

write for your project.

 

 

I wrote, directed and edited a 10 part comic web-series

called Pirate Birthday Party about a family during a 14

year old’s ill-fated birthday party. I directed and helped

produce a 5 episode video-on-demand pilot project

called “Wompy’s World of Musical Play” with songs and puppets for toddlers. I wrote, directed and edited a rite of passage documentary called Tending Fires which screened at the Green Mountain Film Festival, The Lake Placid Film Forum and the Tri-State Film Festival. I’ve made music videos -- including one called Invisible Friends for the Grammy-winning engineer Dean Jones and the band Dog on Fleas. I made two short comic movies (“CSA: Huguenot Street Farm” and “CSA: Huguenot Street Farm – The Sequel“) that were Second Place and First Place winners in the Water Street Market Film Festival 2008 and 2010 in New Paltz.  I’ve written two feature films that have been produced – “Bereft” (for Showtime) was a finalist for the 2006 PEN Center USA Literary Award. “Simple Things” was a finalist in the 2007 International Family Film Festival. I occasionally make promotional videos for websites, businesses and events. Contact me if you want me to make one for you.

 

I’ve been writing children’s books for Heinneman’s leveled literacy series through Fountas and PinnelI. I’ve had humor pieces on McSweeney’s including their Best Of Humor Anthology (“Created In Darkness By Troubled Americans”) published by Knopf in 2004.  I was a writers' assistant for 96 episodes of “Frasier” the Emmy award winning sitcom. I’ve been a leader of wilderness immersion programs for children ages 8-14 with Wild Earth Wilderness School in the Hudson Valley and an arts educator for video, animation and play writing for area schools for 5th-8th grades.  I’m Vermont-born and raised, schooled in New York City and Plainfield, I worked in Hollywood, and I’m currently being raised by my family in New Paltz.
