After 14 years in prison for a crime he swears he didn’t commit, Chick returns home to find his flat-broke family under the thumb of his dangerous Uncle Mike. A Western Gothic tale about a family isolated by shame, Stupid Kid explores power, guilt and the limits of maternal love.

This reading of Stupid Kid by Sharr White (The Affair, Annapurna, Snow Geese) was produced by The New Group as part of their NewWorks Spring Festival. It was directed by Moriz von Stulpnagel (Hand to God) and starred Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer). This was truly a stunning cast!

Warby Parker

I’m excited to be a part of a new online campaign called “Damn it Feels Good” for Warby Parker glasses. The commercial will be out later this fall.


The commercial is out and it’s wonderful! Take a look and watch candy rain from the sky!





Barrio Boy

A Latino barber quietly falls in love with a handsome Irish stranger over the course of a haircut during a hot and sweaty summer afternoon in a macho Brooklyn hood.

I’m excited to be a part of this feature based on the award winning short, filmed in 2014. Shooting starts at the end of September.
