CADDYING AT THE US OPEN – 2020
“What started as a kind of lark, written for Golf.com, expressing my far fetched desire to caddy at the US Open because it was held at Winged Foot Golf Club, where I caddied as a teenager, and trained for my role as “Danny Noonan” in Caddyshack, ended up with me actually getting to caddy there after Carson Daly ran a piece on the Today Show about it. That lead to the NY Post, and ESPN jumping on the story. It was one of the most mind blowing things that ever happened to me.”
RAISING THE ASHES
I directed this documentary about a five-day interfaith retreat at Auschwitz. Teacher and activist Roshi Bernie Glassman brought together 150 diverse people, including a few descendants of both camp survivors and Nazis, for a meditation experience. With soundtrack songs by Patti Smith and Neil Young, the film is an exploration of the past, with an eye towards addressing social issues in the present. The film is available via Vimeo after donating to the Zen Peacemaker Order.
