About Me

Why I tell stories... 

From a very young age I always seemed to feel my happiest when I was creating made-up worlds in my mind. Much to my excitement, it turned out  I was what people called a "creative person". Years later I found the path to put these skills to use. Enrolling in Art Center College of Design to study advertising and filmmaking. After graduation I began a career as an Art Director for some of the best ad agencies in the country. Eventual working into a Creative Director role at various agencies throughout my 10+ years in advertising. But it was then I decided to fulfill my next goal, directing. I left the agency world and began directing commercials. I had a great start and was lucky enough to be a signed director at various commercial production companies in Los Angeles before opening my own production company.  I have worked on a variety of projects in all sizes and approach each project with the same creative appetite, always looking to not just deliver what is asked but to put the extra time in and make it something even better. I always remind myself;  to be successful you must have the ability to prepare and the confidence to pull it off.
