Thank you very much for visiting my website.

After being fortunate to hone my communication skills under great mentors as a branding creative, I am now devoted to using filmmaking and storytelling to address human challenges and offer healing perspectives and teachings. My catalog includes features, television pilots, 12 transformational short film scripts, a play, original music, and two books. I’m currently in pre-production on my next film, The Principle, which focuses on cyberbullying and which I am also directing.

My first film about the Middle East conflict and the power of forgiveness, Admissions, won 26 international awards and stars Academy Award® nominee, James Cromwell. The film has been translated into German, Italian, Hebrew, Farsi, Arabic, and Spanish and broadcast to 80 million homes worldwide.  It is now part of the world-renown curriculum of The Stanford University Forgiveness Project. Admissions also helped launch PeaceNow.com where I am Co-Founder and where we are gathering one billion signatures to establish Peace Departments in government worldwide.

Inspired by the success of Admissions,  I launched with a great team, The Peace Entertainment Project, Inc. – PEPSTAR.org. We are a non-profit that supports filmmakers, artists, authors, educators, and peacebuilders who create content that contributes to the global culture of peace and “promotes the kind in humankind.”

We offer fiscal sponsorship that enables these important projects to raise tax-deductible donations while retaining 100 percent ownership of their work. We operate under the belief that one positive film that goes viral can impact more hearts and minds than a million classes on the same subject. Whether you are a creator or a supporter, we invite you to join us as we educate, elevate and entertain for the greater good.

PEPSTAR’s first two fiscally sponsored short film projects address cyberbullying and opioid abuse:  https://pepstar.org/latest-projects/
