UP ON THE GLASS
UP ON THE GLASS (co-writer, actor, producer): A wanderer named Jack DiMercurio secretly desires the life and wife of his more affluent friend, Andy Shelton. Past tensions resurface between the two men during an informal reunion at Andy's cottage on Lake Michigan. One heinous act allows Jack to draw close to Andy's wife Liz, but Jack finds living Andy's life is a dangerous lie.
"With compelling performances and strong direction, Up on the Glass will keep you on the edge of your seat, as the unbearable tension builds to a terrifying and unforgettable conclusion. It will make you think twice about the things you covet and the lengths you’d go to get everything you’ve ever wanted — only to discover contentment may not lie on the other side of aspiration." Stephanie Malone, Morbidly Beautiful

THOSE LITTLE MONSTERS (co-writer, actor, producer): A young woman and her partner are trapped in a home they built with lies. When she meets another man who inspires her to change, her partner will do anything to stop their truth.
