Born and raised in Astoria, NY, I was influenced by Godzilla films, Stanley Kubrick, German expressionism, spaghetti westerns, kung fu movies, Werner Herzog and more. I love the art of filmmaking and the way it creates stories, worlds, and provides a means to express how the story is told.
I started under the banner of Damn Smooth Pictures and did most of my feature films until 2015 when I founded Alazmat Films. BUT STILL HERE is the first film under that banner. More films to come.
