work

i’m currently developing two features. the first is an observational portrait of a lost artist who journeys from subject (observer) to object (observed). the second follows a comic forced to confront the religious shame that fuels their explicit comedy.

for other people, i recently completed a screenplay about the 1982 murder of vincent chin and another, a psychological thriller, about an undocumented refugee held captive.

with carolyn pfeiffer, i’m finishing a creative nonfiction book about film in europe during the 1960s that will be published by harpercollins in may 2022.

other film work includes writing and directing thokozani (2010) and a song still inside (2013), and screenwriting credits on the ningyo (2018), mayday (2021), & coyote (2021).
