I’ve been very active in independent filmmaking over the years. I went to film school at Emerson College in the great city of Boston. Afterward, I drove cross country to Los Angeles and started an internship with Ridley Scott. That led to becoming a Production Assistant, eventually a Director’s Assistant on the film END OF DAYS with Arnold Scwarzennegger. From there I made several of my own micro-budgeted movies, music videos, commercials, short films and reels. I started and ran The Ten Dollar Movie Club filmmaking collective for several years. A few of our films made it into festivals and distribution. Pretty fun! Nowadays I’m focusing mostly on screenwriting, although I am seriously considering a filmmaking project. I don’t want to just make anything. I’ve done that. Several times. Now I’d like to only make projects that I can really stand behind. I’ll keep updates coming if anything substantial happens. In the meantime, here’s a small sampling of my work.

Dark Regions press
Truly an honor to have made this for one of my favorite authors, and a great small press, Dark Regions.
Courtney C. Joyner
This is for C. Courtney Joyner’s great paperback western, SHOTGUN. Getting the music for this just right took a few passes. It was great working with Courtney to nail this.
