“Genesis” is a short documentary that I produced and directed about a sweet young artist who plans to be an animal rescuer when she grows up.

“Genesis” is one episode of a series of documentary short films that I have produced and directed for Hearing First — an organization that promotes Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) for children who are deaf or hard of hearing — through FiveStone, an agency here in NYC.
