I am thrilled to announce that a short film I wrote, Generations, is currently in pre-production and will begin shooting in Spring 2017. My dear friend, George Maguire, approached me in September to write a film about family secrets & coming to terms with one's heritage. The film is inspired by his own life & family history. After writing a few drafts, we quickly assembled our amazing creative team: Kourosh Ahari (director), Alex Bretow (producer) & Nancy Madden (associate producer/cast). This project is deeply personal and a labor of love for us all.

Please take a moment to watch the video and check out some of our fun perks. And remember that your contribution is 100% tax-deductible--so get it in before December 31.

This is a huge creative step for me as a writer & artist. I hope you all will continue to be a part of that journey by donating and/or sharing this post. You can also like our FB page:

Much love to you all and thank you for your support.


GENERATIONS is a film that follows the story of Bill, a doctor who must learn to accept himself after tragedy at work and family conflict provoke him to discover the truth about his lineage.

GENERATIONS explores how vulnerability can be a catalyst for moving through personal shame and ancestral wounding—a journey that can help heal generations of the past and generations yet to come.

Currently working on the short film, "Generations"
