While I don’t have to direct everything I write, I prefer to write or co-write everything I direct or co-direct. I love creating the images that people will see, suffusing them with how I view the world of my characters. In my earlier work, I not only wrote and directed, but I also shot, edited, and often did the special effects. I love doing those things, but getting collaborators who share the vision and are way more skilled in those arenas frees me up to focus on what I’m bringing to the screen.
In 2011, I met someone who would change my life in innumerable ways, all for the better: filmmaker, actress, and entrepreneur Shannon Lark.
In 2013, we collaborated on a short film called I AM MONSTER which took the world by storm, playing at over fifty film festivals over the next year or so. We enjoyed working together so much that we decided to create Double Exposure (Entertainment).
