I'm the co-founder and publisher of ADK MOGUL, a film and writing resource program that provides location and production management for films shooting in the Adirondack region. I'm developing a seasonal journal featuring the best in area student writing.
Currently, we are working with ten small independent movie theaters in the Adirondack Park in helping them transition to digital film and provide alternative and sustaining programming as part of our campaign, Go Digital or Go Dark.
We just released our first short film, The Deal, which was written and directed by my better-half, T J Brearton.
I'm also an English teacher. I wrote my Masters' thesis on comics writer Grant Morrison and Renaissance philosopher Giovanni Pico della Mirandola. I'm teaching English Composition at Paul Smith's College and North Country Community College.
The Worst Writer Ever, my first graphic novel, is a literacy autobiography on how comic books have affected my life. Currently, I'm co-writing the comic book The Collective with Leaping Tall Buildings editor Christopher Irving.
