LATEST NEWS: I just self published my first novel. GETTING PERSONAL tells a tale of SEX, wine, fashion, MUSIC, love, lust, HIPSTERS, strippers, stoners, ART, food, cocktails, JEALOUSY, romance,...and most of all, what it is like to be single in the age of social media. Adam, an up-and-coming photographer who has all but given up hope at finding his true love, focuses his time on networking and stumbles upon Chloe, a beautiful, Euro-Asian, soon-to-be pop star who is much more than she seems. After becoming friends with Chloe, Adam debates on whether to keep his relationship with her strictly professional, or take a big leap of faith and let the chips fall where they may. Kelly, Adam’s roommate, is also reluctant to seek romance as she recovers from a bad break-up. Her friends at work, however, suck her into an online community where she meets her fantasy man, Derek, an incredibly gorgeous and wealthy lawyer who leads her to believe that maybe there is a light at the end of the tunnel. As Adam, Kelly, and their collection of misfit friends all embark on a crazy, hilarious, and sometimes rather erotic journey throughout the City of Angels by way of the information super highway, they come to wonder if true happiness in the real world...isn’t just a mouse click away.
It's a cross between "Sex and the City", "Californication", and "He's just not that into you". My ultimate goal is to split the film up into three movies, using the profits from the book to finance them independently. If you'd like to get a copy for yourself, it is available on Amazon.com:

Now, that being said, I am not as much a photographer as I am a writer and filmmaker. I am looking for actors and models to help with independent shorts and features I am working on. Mostly comedy. I am always on the look out for people (male and female) with great looks about them, but most of all, someone with character. You can see my short film with a cameo by Ellen Pompeo of "Grey's Anatomy" as well as my first feature film LEON TWELVE at:
I always say LA is short lazy because I see so many people out here who are trying to be famous but really aren't doing it because they love the work and frankly don't seem to want to work at all but rather have it handed to them. I see so many people who have attitude because they look good, but forget they are living in a city filled with the hottest people on Earth, and no matter what you look like there are 10 people out there who look just like you, and in ten years there will be ten more people who look just like you but ten years younger.
I am starting a new project in the beginning of the year and i am writing characters around the people I know. Many of my friends are working actors and models, and we all know how hard it is to break in and make a mark in the industry so i am starting a series of projects with them to help us all get over the wall. None of us are getting paid up front. We are doing it because we simply want to work, and by doing it on a independent level we all will have control of the end product. What I am looking for here is for anyone who isn't too high on themselves and has the desire to just be creative and do something different, whether it be a 30 second short, or a feature length film shot with a handful of people in an apartment. If you are interested in being apart of it let me know. If you have ideas of your own for a project you and/or your friends want to do, I am always up for hearing it. I just am tired of waiting for people to give me my break so I decided to be a person who makes things happen rather than someone who lets things happen. Which one do you want to be?
