I came across this article today and shared it on social media - I've worked on the issue of gun violence and once edited a video of Nardyne Jeffries for the organization Protest Easy Guns.
After sharing the article, I discovered towards the bottom there was a link to the video I had edited. I'm very proud that the work I did is able to support Nardyne's efforts to reduce gun violence.

On Thursday, June 4th, Michael Wood and I introduced the film A Warm Spell (Mike shot the film; I produced it) before a screening at the New York Japan Cinefest at the Asia Society.
The film ended up winning the Audience Choice Award! Here's a photo of Mike and I introducing the film as well as some coverage in a newspaper I can't read (which is awesome)!
But Not For Me's Audience Choice Award and Best Original Score Award were mentioned in an IndieWire article - check it out: http://www.indiewire.com/article/sweaty-betty-funny-bunny-win-big-at-18th-brooklyn-film-festival-20150609
In the September issue of Towson Life magazine, a local magazine published in Towson, MD (where I attended Towson University), I was featured on the cover for a story written about my time at Towson, my film work since, my artistic and career aspirations, and my current film (now in Post-Production), The Middle Ground .
Unfortunately, the article isn't online for me to share here, but here's a shot of the cover of the magazine. This is a photo of me on the set of The Middle Ground . The photo is by my friend and classmate, Saba Riazi.
The film addresses the lack of affordable housing, among other socio-political problems, facing up-and-coming young and middle-class New Yorkers.
