I have recently created a company, Out of the Dirt Productions, whose
mission is to bring awareness and get others to take action to solve
urgent environmental, health and social issues.
My first film, RATS TO ROSES, is intended to be a one-hour documentary
that celebrates New York Citys community gardens and the dedicated
volunteers who keep them flourishing. I believe that this documentary
could potentially play a valuable role in helping to prevent the
destruction of NYCs beloved gardens.
These gardens have provided a haven, a sanctuary, and a community
center without walls, in the heart of NYC to thousands of low-income
people of color. They have given them a sense of pride and feeling of
accomplishment in helping to make their community a better place to
live. My goal is to become even more effective in communicating how
the power of one, the power of each person to affect change.

know how to do this?

trouble with the "ll" in Llorona, the real name of the Weeping Woman).

Now I'm working on making the leap to long-form with several ideas in
development. The bread and butter so far is teaching online

But I'm moving into editing as my b&b, am working on a narrative short
right now, *Harvey the Larvae*.
