- I'm a NJ-based writer and producer. I recently completed my first Feature film, Surviving Family, which premiered in August 2012 at the 21st annual Woods Hole Film Festival in Cape Cod, MA. It has since screened at 8 other festivals & won numerous awards.
I'm working on 2 other feature-length screenplays, with hopes of shooting one of them in 2014.
- "Surviving Family," and several shorts including "Foreclosed," "Jump Start," and "The Seduction of Eve."
- Surviving Family has received several awards including Runner up for Best Narrative Feature at Woods Hole Film Festival; Best Narrative Feature at the Columbia Gorge Int'l Film Festival; Best Actress (Sarah Wilson) and the Viewers Choice Award at the Indie Gathering; the Courage Award at the Offshoot Film Festival ; Best Actress (Sarah Wilson) and Best Supporting Actress (Phyllis Somerville) as well as the Female Filmmaker Award at the Golden Door Film Festival in Jersey City.
