He is currently working on writing his own solo show and a book version of HOME. This is his first foray in film Making.


It is our hope that Home will be a project that resonates from the heart to the heart. We made this film because we wanted to share our passion and celebration of the human spirit with New York and with all the world. New York, the world and certainly man, are truly and ultimately unknowable. But with this film, we have captured a moment of time, and a pulse of the most culturally diverse city in the world.
