directing

I've directed a sh*t ton of commercials, sketches & narrative short films. In February 2019, I wrapped my first feature, "SCARE ME" starring Aya Cash, Chris Redd, and myself. It premieres at Sundance 2020 in the "Midnight" section, and has been picked up by Shudder for distribution in the US, UK, and Ireland. My next film, a comedy/ensemble whodunnit from Ubisoft Film & Television, starts production in February 2020.

Great guests and funny voices with Josh Ruben. The Mindhouse Podcast is kind of like “WTF” but less articulate.  New episodes Tuesdays! Intro track by my sister, Rachael Yamagata!
