ABOUT

I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY to illegal aliens. So, I could be labeled an "anchor baby".  But since I'm an adult now, I prefer “anchorman".  ☺ 

 

With over 3 decades in the entertainment industry, I've worn many hats. 

 

As an actor, I've worked on over 30 TV/Film projects.  Some credits: OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE ('Puerto Rican Kid' robbing Bette Middler & Shelly Long), THE HARDWAY ('Mugger' threatening Michael J. Fox & arrested by James Woods), E.R. (young gangster, opposite George Clooney & Julianna Marguilles), BOWFINGER (illegal alien, opposite Steve Martin & Eddie Murphy), THE LIMEY (a 'Parking Valet' opposite Terrence Stamp), THE SHRINK IS IN (Valet again, opposite Courtney Cox), BLUE BLOODS ('Dominican Man' with 1 line), TRANSFORMERS ('Clown', opposite Shia LaBeouf & Bernie Mac - 2 lines!), SIDE EFFECTS ('Nurse', opposite Jude Law & Rooney Mara - back to 1 line!) LAW & ORDER: SVU ('Doorman', opposite Mariska Hargitay - 3 lines!).  But all kidding aside, I genuinely feel very fortunate to be able to work with extremely talented people on numerous wonderful projects.  

 

As a writer, my short screenplay SPIC (inspired by true events from my youth) won Finalist at 2019 Blue Cat Screenplay Competition and First Place at Diverse Voices WeScreenplay Competition 2019/2020.  My feature screenplay, AMBER, placed Semi-Finalist (top 2% from 11,907 screenplays) at Austin Film Festival’s screenwriting competition 2019.  I also co-wrote A THROUGH M, a politically based, Sci-Fi, short film produced in collaboration with A.F.I.  A through M won numerous awards, including Best Dramatic Short Screenplay and Best Dramatic Short Film.  I also consulted Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood, The Vow, Boston Public) on a feature film script.

 

As a producer, I produced the highly critically acclaimed film FIND ME GUILTY directed by Sydney Lumet (Academy Award Honoree), starring Vin Diesel & Peter Dinklage; and also EVEN MONEY starring Academy Award Winners Kim Basinger and Forest Whitaker. I also produced the shorts NOISE (Director Max Williamson) and MUSCLE (Director Heidi Marshall) winner of over 7 awards, including Best of Fest Award (Chick Flicks Film Festival), Best Narrative Short Film Award (Broadway International Film Festival), and Best Actress award. 

Actors whose work I enjoy include:  Michael Fassbender, Octavia Spencer, Jack Lemmon, Mario Moreno, Awkwafina, Rosario Dawson, Don Cheadle, Toni Collette, Sidney Poitier, Regina Hall, Michelle Yeoh, Naomi Watts, Ruben Blades, America Ferrera, Samuel L. Jackson, Kate Del Castillo, Benicio Del Toro, Derek Luke, Diane Keaton, Will Smith, Brad Pitt, Julianne Moore, Anthony Mackie, Helena Bonham Carter, Eugenio Derbez, Diane Weist, etc...
