I am a graduate of Milton Academy, Bates College, and the MFA program at the University of North Carolina in Wilmington.

My first two-act play, Why Are You Nowhere?, was the winner of the Playwrights Award for Staged Reading at the Midtown International Theatre Festival in July 2016, and had its first full production at Southeastern Louisiana University in February 2017. My short plays have been performed at festivals and conferences around the country, with my play Ode on a Donut Shop published in the Stage-It! 10 Minute Play Collection. In 2017, I was a finalist for The Boston Project at SpeakEasy Stage. 

In 2013, I directed the feature film, West of Her, which I also wrote and produced, through my production company, Corner Piece Productions. West of Her played at eleven film festivals in the US and Canada in summer 2016, winning Best Narrative Feature at four of them. Hailed by critics as "enchanting," "mesmerizingly beautiful," and "full of mystery," West of Her will be released through Gravitas Ventures in February 2018.

I live on the south shore of Boston area with my wife, Caitlin, and our daughter, Nora.
