HOME

I’m a screenwriter and filmmaker focusing primarily on writing children’s media. I love preschool shows especially, but when possible I work on 6-9-year-old properties and all the way up to adult films and media. I’m based in New York and I’ve worked with projects from all around the world. Some of the properties I’ve contributed to include:
