About

I’m a Los Angeles-based director making films and commercials that strive to connect heart and entertainment.

After studying directing and cinematography at USC and Art Center, I got my start in the industry as a storyboard artist. During that time I developed a deep appreciation of impactful, multi-layered visual storytelling while working closely with directors such as F. Gary Gray, Doug Liman, and Barry Levinson.

Since launching my directing career with an AICP award-winning spec commercial, I’ve helmed national commercial campaigns, written and directed award-winning short films, and been Emmy nominated for Main Title Design. It’s been fun. But most of that work looks old now, so I probably shouldn’t have brought it up.

My latest film “The Answers” premiered at the 2015 Santa Barbara Int’l Film Festival and won the award for Best-Live Action Short. It’s a romantic-comedy-tragedy about dying and getting answers to every question you’ve had about your life.

Let’s start a conversation. I’d love to hear about a project and bounce some ideas around. Developing creative is my favorite.
