FILMMAKING

I've been writing and directing short films since 2002, with a hiatus while my technology career began to take off. I've also intermittently done videography for the local burlesque scene in the Bay Area, shooting and editing high quality performance video. I am the writer and director for all shorts listed here.

Short films are hosted on Vimeo.

Videography and miscellany are hosted on YouTube.
