Director, Producer

Before the Dawn is one of those films that leaves a mark on you and stays there long after watching it...
— IMDb review
It’s not the story you might expect with the setup in place, but is very well-acted and directed (by Jay Holben), almost unabashedly earnest in delivering its outcome...
