I am the director, co-writer and co-producer of the independent feature film, Happy Holidays (” … an independent movie about family and friends coming together during the holiday season but with a nicely twisted sense of humor … The movie, shot in black and white, captures the look of a small New England town in winter perfectly ..” – Amy Diaz, The Hippo (New Hampshire). Happy Holidays is currently available on DVD (through TLA Video), Hulu, iTunes, Roku, Google Play and numerous other online platforms.
