ELEVATING DIFFERENCE

I’m a writer/director and author of character-driven adventures and thrillers, where heroes grapple with the extraordinary, and in doing so, learn important truths about themselves.

I spent most of my childhood between worlds: a Hebrew speaker in America, a private school kid with no money, a suburbanite in a rented apartment. Whenever I’d set foot in one world, my other foot would betray me as different. For that reason, I tell stories that embrace the peculiar, where encounters with the strange reveal who we are.

 

And those stories seem to be resonating:  My films have captivated audiences at film festivals around the globe. My screenplays placed in dozens of contests. And my award-winning graphic novel sold over 5000 copies in its first week.

I was recently hired by a comics publisher to help build a new division for high-quality, mass-market Jewish content. There, I shepherd multiple comics series (including my own) and manage the development of a new Jewish Comics Universe (a JCU!)

 

With fresh screenplays ready to go, new comics to write and a universe to build, I am looking to expand my team, forge new partnerships, and once again elevate difference on the page and the screen.
