Hey, I'm Ron!

Culver City, California

I create films and images that speak to a range of human experiences. Films from narrative stories about the quest for love to documentaries that illuminate the human condition in life changing scenarios such as war. Photographs from portraiture to landscapes.

 

My feature length documentary The Millionaires' Unit - U.S. Naval Aviators in the First World War, which I co-directed/produced with Darroch Greer, won "Best Feature Documentary" at two film festivals in 2015 will begin digital distribution in 2017.

 

I also have the dubious distinction of having the first human encounter (as Farmer Moore) with a Klingon in the pilot episode of Enterprise.
