About

Creative addict
I am addicted to creativity in all forms. It’s truly my high.  I’m an award winning creator of entertainment content possessing over 20 years experience in digital, tv shows, national commercials, print and more. Expertise in encompassing all roles of a project from ideation thru launch; conceptualizing, writing, directing, designing, live action, animating, scoring, and editing. I’ve done this on over 100 comedy episodes for 5 networks, online and broadcast, bags of eclectic spots, the launches of many successful online strategies of evil – and I’m still not sick of it!
This media business changes weekly, it’s not surprising that good raw ideas are still king.
I’ve also held staff positions where I’ve led creative teams to great heights. It’s an exciting challenge to inspire and motivate a great team of talented weirdos. I’m one of them, I’m a huge weirdo, I know how. Moral is key. Love your talented weirdos!
My philosophy: This isn’t work, this is love. All creativity comes from the heart.
I put out the best product I can while we have the best time possible.
Life is good.
