Maurice Cloche, my late grand-father, was the very first foreign director to receive the Oscar for Best-Foreign picture, when the Academy Awards created this category in 1948. When I was a child, I visited him often in his small castle outside of Paris. I was fascinated with his numerous screenplays, cameras and the film clips and movie sets. At 12 years old, I started writing poetry and songs. At 20, when I broke my back in a car accident, and had to lie for seven months to heal, I wrote my first TV series. Writing was innate for me as a natural way of self-expression and I landed in the US to create my own destiny 35 years ago. I arrived in L.A in 1995, with just one suitcase in hand thinking Hollywood was waiting for me. It wasn’t, so I used my entrepreneurial skills to make a living while pursuing my...
Currently doing the festival rounds with my first zero-budget feature UNINTENTIONHELL, which I wrote/directed. Shot in May/June 2019, the budget was minuscule, but with some fantastic performers and a tiny, terrific crew, we managed to complete it and so far picked up a few laurels! Best Experience Ever. Worked in touring theatre almost 20 years. Ran and performed in my own children's theatre companies for seven years. Have been writing for several decades. Love stories of all kinds. Have about a dozen completed screenplays. Specialize in but not limited to family features. Have a large-scale animation feature in pre-production with an animation studio. Holding my breath to see if it reaches full production. I hugely admire great writing, and aspire to match the greatest storytellers of fantastical tales.
