Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley. Always the class clown, I enrolled in the CSUN teenage drama workshop. This is where I directed a scene from Marx Bros "The Cocoanuts". Then in high school I was involved in play production,speech club & film club. I directed the play "God" by Woody Allen, directed several short super 8 films & won several speech & drama awards. I then began a short acting career having several bit parts in the 1980s on "General Hospital", "Diff'rent Strokes", "Silver Spoons", "Spencer", "The New, Love American Style", "What's Happening Now", "Stingray", "Free Ride", "Like Father, Like Son". Then nothing. A friend called asking, would you like to PA on "Unsolved Mysteries?” So from 1989 till 1993, I traveled all over the western United States with the show. I began to PA on several movies "Volcano", "Face/Off", "Virtuosity", "Metro" to name a few. Then I began to AD on a low budget movies. So from 1994 till 1996, I worked as a non-union AD till I had enough days to join the DGA. In 2005 I was nominated for a DGA award as part of Director George Clooney's DGA team for "Good Night Good Luck". Recently I have been directing a series of short films that have been winning awards on the film festival circuit.
