writer. DIRECTOR. EXPLORER.

 

I'm a writer and director in commercials and feature films based 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 next feature film titled Glorious Empire.

In another life 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 club. I've mentored kids in jail, taught cinema and English, and I authored a novel called Cupertino about delinquent youth in, you guessed it, Cupertino. 

Aside from my day (and often night) job as a producer of esports content, I'm also currently an MFA candidate in Writing for Film and TV at Emerson College, graduating in 2019. I studied film directing at the National Polish 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, misguided youth, the wise fool, people with personality disorders. Psychology, fate, determinism - these things also fascinate me. Cinema is a means to find and define ourselves and express the best and worst of human possibilities.
