Director Statement

An inert, seemingly dead turtle in a friend's house inspired me to write Touch of the Devil which I also directed and produced. Thanks to Max Margolin's film crew, I saw the characters come to life in thrilling scenes with unique, haunting sounds. Making this movie was the most thrilling and challenging experiences of my life. I'm filming Parking Lot Love now and having a blast working with newcomers who improvise and love the art and craft of film making as much as I do. Working as a team is a peak, nonpareil experience that I highly recommend!
