I've been a film, sound and picture editor for 38 years at various studios in Los Angeles. I have also written, directed, and composed music for a number of films. My lastest writing/directing effort has won 3 of 18 festivals, had a 100 theatre US theatrical release, is airing on STARZ, is on iTunes and has just been optioned to be made into a Broadway musical. The film stars Jason Alexander, Val Pettiford, Kathy Najimy Sally Kirkland and every major studio head, producer, and director, playing themselves (AMY PASCAL, JOE ROTH, STUART CORNFELD, JACK RAPKEE, AMY HECKERLING to name a few.)

I would like to show you how to see the complete picture in your head, in your script, in your storyboard so you shoot what you need to cut it together, and make to realize your vision.

Film

I have been a film editor (picture), music editor, and sound editor on studio films for the last 38 years -- my last two credits being A NIGHT AT THE ROXBURY and CLUELESS (I was on the staff editor at Sony Pictures for 14 years). Besides editing, I have written a number of screenplays for Columbia Pictures as well as Michael Philips (THE STING) productions. My latest films which I produced, wrote, directed, composed and edited, entitled NOT YOUR TIME stars JASON ALEXANDER, VAL PETTIFORD, KATHY NAJIMY and SALLY KIRKLAND was won 3 of 18 festivals, had a 100 US theatre release, aired on STARZ in May and Dec of 2013, is on iTunes (take a look) and has been optioned to be made into a Broadway musical. My new TV series, which I am also writing has been optioned.

I am a graduate of PERFORMING ARTS HIGH SCHOOL, MANHATTAN SCHOOL OF MUSIC (music comp major), NEW YORK UNIVERSITY (BFA) and THE AMERICAN FILM INSITUTE (MFA). I have seen every broadway musical since 1964 and know music and book structure better than anyone I know.
