After moving to the northeast to pursue an acting career, he wrote the screenplay for The Battery based on an audition tape he made for a horror film casting contest. Two years of rewrites and fundraising attempts later, he asked ten of his friends for six hundred dollars apiece in exchange for a stake in the finished film. In August of 2011, with six thousand dollars and a cast and crew of five, he shot the movie in two weeks in the woods of northern Connecticut. The Battery is his first feature film.
