Hey, I'm Tom!

New York, New York

I write, direct and produce films in New York City. I cofounded Zero Point Films along with Robert Wagner in 2010.  Currently we are in post-production for the short film The Empty which I wrote and directed. The Empty is a journey into a more dramatic, ellipitical film as we've previously focused on dark comedies.  The film was shot over the spring and summer of 2016.  Thus far, Zero Point Films,  has completed two previous short films; Spilt Milk and Artaud's Descendants. In my spare time I also curate and produce the New York No Limits Film Series right here in, yup, NYC.
