Yes!  Some good news:  The first short film I've directed (from a script I wrote), titled "Dressed," has been accepted into the REEL Recovery Film Festival for 2014.  This terrific festival will play in 10 cities this year, including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, and Las Vegas.  

The first short film I wrote, "Top of the World," played in this festival also.   The screening in Greenwich Village in New York was a day I'll never forget.  I'm thrilled to have an ongoing relationship with the REEL Recovery Film Festival.

"Dressed" will be released soon.  I can't wait to share it with you...and with the festival audiences!
