"Know How" is his first foray into narrative features. His first motion picture, "Second Skin," is a documentary about virtual worlds like World of Warcraft, Everquest, and Second Life. It premiered opening night of SXSW and won a lot of accolades (the #4 Documentary of 2008 by Ain’t It Cool News, an Adobe MAX award for entertainment in 2009, and best documentary at the ACE Film Festival in 2008).  Besides making films, he is also an activist, having founded “White Roof Project” and acted as a mentor for NYC youth.
