I am an independent filmmaker (NYU 3-month Independent Film Production Intensive 2002). I recently completed a 10-yr. run teaching acting in California Institute of the Arts Character Animation Dept. I am now teaching Acting for Film at the New York Film Academy, Burbank. I am also a professional actor and director and am currently completing the writing, directing and editing of a 70-minute documentary film. I was a Location Manager for commercials in many challenging physical and weather conditions in Vancouver, Canada and certainly am aware of taking care of equipment!
