writer. DIRECTOR. EXPLORER.
I'm a writer, director, and producer in commercials and feature films in Los Angeles. My award winning debut film The Purple Onion premiered at Cinequest Film Festival in 2014, is distributed by Cinemation, and is available on major VOD platforms (Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, and Google Play) . I'm currently in development on my second feature film Glorious Empire.
In February of 2019 I left my full time producing job at the esports company Immortals to embark more fully on the development of my next film and to complete my last semester for my MFA in Writing for Film and TV at Emerson College (2019).
I studied film directing at the Polish National Film School in Poland, where my parents emigrated from. I received a BA in Humanities from Loyola Marymount University. I'm drawn to stories about marginal characters, the creative, leaders, adventurers, rebels, misguided youth, the wise fool, as well as people with personality disorders. Psychology, fate, determinism, compassion, hedonism are just some topics that fascinate me.
In another lifetime I worked at a furniture factory in China, as a seasonal waiter in Greece, as a host of a travel show in Poland, and as a door guy in San Francisco's top comedy clubs. I've mentored kids in jail, taught cinema and English, and at the age of 22 I authored and self published a novel called Cupertino about delinquent youth in, you guessed it, Cupertino.
