I am a filmmaker based in London, though I was born and raised in Philadelphia. I've directed and produced films for theatrical release, as well as films and series for Netflix, Amazon Studios, ESPN, Discovery and Nat Geo.
My debut feature documentary film, JASON BECKER: NOT DEAD YET, told the story of legendary musician Jason Becker and his lifelong battle with ALS. The film screened at film festivals around the world and was a New York Times Critic's Pick when it was theatrically released by Dogwoof in the US.
My follow-up film, THE PRINCE OF PENNSYLVANIA, told the bizarre story of John du Pont and his Foxcatcher wrestling team. It was produced with Raw for ESPN's 30 f0r 30 series. Prior to its broadcast in October 2015, it premiered at the Philadelphia Film Festival and the Hot Springs Film Festival, where it was nominated for Best Sports Documentary.
In November 2016, my film COLA KIDNAP, a thriller about a high-profile kidnapping that took place in Rio de Janeiro, premiered at DOC NYC Film Festival and was later released on Netflix as part of the Netflix original documentary series, CAPTIVE. The series was produced by Simon Chinn (Searching for Sugarman, Man on Wire) at Lightbox and Doug Liman
(Edge of Tomorrow, The Bourne Identity) at Hypnotic.
My next feature doc, GYPSY'S REVENGE, chronicled the tragic tale of Gypsy Rose Blanchard and her mother Dee Dee. The film was produced by Simon Chinn for Lightbox and was released on Investigation Discovery in November 2018.
I then went on to travel around the world filming people with inspiring stories to tell about their love for football and how it changed their lives. This resulted in a film entitled, 'LOVE', which premiered on Amazon Prime in August 2019, as part of the Amazon original film anthology series, THIS IS FOOTBALL.
I recently completed work on 'The Ripper', a 4-part true crime series for Netflix about The Yorkshire Ripper murders that took place in the north of England in the 1970s. It's due for release in December 2020.
I am currently working with Lightbox on a 4-part documentary series, which will be released by Investigation Discovery and Amazon Studios in late 2021.
