RECENT WORK OBVIOUS CHILD is a movie about a Brooklyn stand-up comic who gets dumped, fired, and pregnant just in time for Valentine’s Day. It’s a story about rights and realities.

I WRITE because it’s cheaper than therapy. But mostly I really enjoy telling human stories in a humorous way.

DYSLEXIA is why I became interested in telling stories visually. The freedom that came with letting go of being perfect was cathartic.

MY WORK, IN SIX WORDS Honest without taking itself too seriously.
