Director Statement

I was born into a family of creatives. My Italian grandfather on my Mothers side owned a dinner theater where I grew up watching actors rehearse with Directors and perform on the weekends. My grandfather on my Fathers side was an outspoken public figure, writer and master debater who regularly appeared on news and talk shows. My father was a musician / songwriter who toured the DMV in the 80s and continues to this day to produce music. He has won 2 awards for music composed for LoftonFilms productions.

Growing up, my 2 brothers and I were mainly raised by our single Mother and grandparents on our Fathers side. All these people and experiences we had during our childhood shaped me into the storyteller that I am today.

I prefer to create more serious films, but also enjoy creating horror & comedy as well. I hope you enjoy the LoftonFilms productions!
