1. Finally in 2013 it’s no longer WHITES ONLY in GARDEN CITY

    New short documentary I shot and edited for the Mutual Housing Association of New York.

    In 2005, after years of
    racially discriminatory
    behavior and practices,
    MHANY and NY ACORN filed suit
    against Nassau County
    and the Village of
    Garden City.

    On December 6, 2013,
    Federal District Court
    ruled in MHANY and
    NYCC’s favor; Garden
    City’s actions illegally
    discriminated on the
    basis of race and
    national origin against
    minorities and
    perpetuated deep-
    seated segregation.

  4. New ROUGH CUT of short film I have been directing, writing and editing for about three years off and on called :

    THOUGHT POLICE:

     RUN TIME 8 min 40 seconds

    SYNOPSIS: 

    In the future the minds of people are controlled and monitored, a battered woman addicted to an illegal new drug must escape the grasp of the thought police, a chase that will blur the line between fantasy and reality for forever for all.

    "Thoughtcrime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for a while, even for years, but sooner or later they were bound to get you."
    George Orwell - 1984

    Currently working on sound design and advanced visual effects. Anyone want to help with critique or material aid. Hit me up. 

    This project has been an collaborative effort. 

     
     
  5. "THE MOLD" | #FARROCKAWAY 60 DAYS AND COUNTING AFTER #HURRICANESANDY 

    In the aftermath of the hurricane, volunteers mobilized to provide aid to Rockaway residents. Twelve hundred and fifty one surveys were collected from residents living in Far Rockaways.

    In the last two weeks of December, New York Communities for Change organizers called and visited a sample of the initial survey takers to assess the current habitability situation, two months after Hurricane Sandy hit.

    The results document a clear failure by the Bloomberg administration to solve several problems of habitability, including electricity, heat, wet sheetrock removal and mold remediation.

    A significant number of Rockaway residents have still not returned to their homes. And for those that have been lucky enough to return home, things are still not back to normal.

  8. KILLED BY #NYPD -TAMON ROBINSON’S FAMILY SPEAKS OUT - #JUSTICEFORTAMON #JUSTICEFORTHEMALL

    WHAT HAPPENED TO TAMON ROBINSON?
    “Tamon Robinson, 27, was allegedly spotted by NYPD around 5:30 AM on April 12th stealing cobblestones from the Bay View Houses, a public housing complex in.
    Robinson, the police reported, ran to his mother’s building after being spotted. The police, two officers on foot and others in a patrol car, then chased him onto the sidewalk to cut off his escape.
    Despite reports from two eyewitnesses who saw Robinson cornered and then struck by the car, the police maintain that he ran into the car.
    Police at the scene pulled Robinson from under the car, yelling ‘Wake up! Wake up!’ before bouncing him off the hood of the car.”
    The NYPD now says it is investigating its officer’s role in Mr. Robinson’s death.
    How many Mothers will have to bury their sons before we stand up for Justice?
    Justice For Tamon, Justice For Them All!”

  10. “On May 1st 2012, a coalition of students and faculty from Brooklyn College, Columbia University, the CUNY Graduate Center, Eugene Lang College, Hunter College, New School for Social Research, New York University, the Occupy University, and Princeton University collaborated to produce a “collective educational experiment”.

    This day-long Free University is a form of an education strike in which we, a city-wide coalition of students and faculty, simultaneously withdraw our labor from an increasingly privatized, securitized, and exploitative educational system and redirect our energies towards a vision of what education could be.”
