MY FILM MISSION: To make films that enable to viewer to see things in a new way and possibly reconsider their firmly planted convictions and opinions. I want my films to leave the world a better place for an audience having seen them -- to encourage and motivate the viewer to take positive steps they might not have entertained previously, or at least pause and consider before acting or reacting. My favorite films break down the walls of prejudice, or resolve conflicts without the use of guns. And if they're also smart, quirky comedies, all the better!
Film Projects in Development:
"SECRETS OF THE DOLLHOUSE"
11-year-old Rowan mopes through life; her parents are divorced, the kids at school make fun of her, her only refuge is an antique store and a dollhouse with dolls that are “the perfect family.” When she discovers a way to change places with one of the dolls who looks strikingly like her, she finds the family and life she always dreamed of, and her doll twin discovers an exciting life as Rowan on the outside. But the grass is rarely greener.
