"The Candle" is a short but sweet documentary film I shot in the Bronx in the summer of 2013. The film introduces you to Marthalicia Matarrita, a Dominican/Costa Rican street artist raised in New York City with her two brothers, Tomas (older) and Jorge (younger). Encouraged by her mother, Marthalicia and her brothers realized a passion for art at a very young age; and during a very difficult time in their lives.
The film has been screened in a handful of small film festivals over the years since it made its premiere at the 2014 Indie Boots Film Festival in Chicago. It has also screened at film festivals in Los Angeles, Trenton (NJ), San Antonio, Dominican Republic, Buenos Aires, and Barcelona.
It's a modest little film shot over the course of just one afternoon and evening but the message it carries is poignant. It's also a film that I'm very, very proud of. I hope you enjoy it (your feedback is welcome!).

"Little Girl" by Mica Todorović, who is considered “the first lady of Bosnian and Herzegovinian painting". Todorović (1900–1981) attended art school and academy in Zagreb as the only woman in her class. In 1954 she had her first solo exhibition in Belgrade.
From my visit last year to the National Gallery of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Umjetnička galerija BiH) in Sarajevo...

Please allow me to present my award-winning short documentary film, "Angels with Shoes", the story of a living kidney donation between two cousins. Shot in Miami and Puerto Rico, the film won the 'Best International Documentary' and 'Audience Choice' awards at the 2015 Rincón International Film Festival and the 'Best Documentary' award at the 2015 Film Miami Fest.
The film, which I wrote, produced, directed, shot and edited, was a passion project I was inspired to make by my wife Madelyn, a two-time kidney transplant recipient.
There are currently over 123,000 people waiting for lifesaving organ transplants in the United States. If you're not already a donor, please consider becoming one over at Donate Life America https://www.donatelife.net/register. It takes only about 60 seconds and can help save up to 8 lives.
Special thanks to the good folks over at the National Kidney Foundation for their support of this film.
Enjoy and please feel free to leave feedback
