BLY MANOR, MIDNIGHT MASS, MIDNIGHT CLUB & HOUSE OF USHER were each profoundly challenging.

It’s been a privilege to work with some wonderful collaborators, actors, directors, storytellers, crew, family, and friends for so long, over THIRTY-FOUR EPISODES of television – the most difficult and rewarding work of my life.
