Kids History: Christmas Edition

I produced, wrote, and directed this comedic Christmas short film for Trinity Grace Church Park Slope! TGC Park Slope – Kids’ History: Christmas Edition from Trinity Grace Church on Vimeo.  

Me Too

I hesitated to write this post because I’ve “only” experienced sexual harassment and not sexual assault. I felt guilty. Like I would be taking attention away from the more important problem of sexual assault. But I’ve realized that while assault is farther across the line, harassment is definitely on the same side of the line…

Opening Monologue for Jane Lynch + Choice Hotels 2017 Awards Show

“You’ve Got Skills”

I’ve just watched Season 1: Ep. 11 of Luke Cage and I need to talk about this scene between these two awesome powerful women. After handcuffing Shades to the pipe, Claire collapses onto the barrel. Misty turns. Misty Knight: You’ve got skills. Claire Temple: You too. Misty Knight: My father. Claire Temple: My uncle. They laugh together….

Manger Things

This is a Christmas short film I wrote and produced, a spoof called Manger Things. I produced it with Elisa Booker, the Children’s Director of my church here in Brooklyn, Trinity Grace Church Park Slope. The young guys over at Infinity Finite on YouTube, Ethan and Christian Locy, directed and shot it. Ethan directed. Christian shot it. Check it…

Back to Air Squats!

This might be small to some, but it’s huge to me. I can do air squats again. I used to be able to back squat 135 lbs. The very first day I started Crossfit, I did 88 air squats in a row, after 45 minutes of other stuff. But in the worst of my recent…

Jerry & Diane

Chris Domig and Margaret Copeland Hunter star in my not-so-romantic comedy short film about a guitar lesson gone wrong, Jerry & Diane, which premiered at the Big Apple Film Festival at the Tribeca Cinemas on November 9th, 2014. Jerry is a desperate ‘guitar teacher’ hoping to ‘take it to the next level’ with his favorite…

4.5 Weeks Postpartum Confession

I just got out of a shower at 3:30 am where I had a good cry. I am 4.5 weeks postpartum with my son and I can’t sleep. Why was I crying? Lots of reasons. I was crying because I am still carrying baby weight. I was crying because I can’t get back to sleep….

Sonnet #42 for the New York Shakespeare Exchange

I directed (adapted, shot, and edited too) another sonnet for Shakespeare Exchange‘s The Sonnet Project – a great project here in NYC that is aiming to film all of Shakespeare’s sonnets, each performed by a different actor in a carefully chosen New York City location. This time I shot Sonnet 42 about a jilted lover. The location I…
