Associate Creative Director, Film at Apple, formerly Creative Director at Audi of America

I'm a filmmaker, a cinematographer, an editor, and a hopeless proponent of the power of digital cinema.

My academic background in Architecture and professional background in Film & Television has positioned me to problem-solve and drive unique creative solutions. I sought to be a different kind of visual storyteller and design school set me on that path.

I directed my first national commercial (DWS Scutter, Deutsche Bank) at the age of 26 and was named one of the nation's top-50 video marketers (50 Inteviews) at the age of 27. I've had the pleasure of working/producing all over the world for some of the most progressive brands: 2008 Barack Obama Campaign, Honda, Acura, Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week, eTrak, Audi, and Apple.

I'm a technology geek, a food-lover and a wine-taster, and an ardent beliver that teaching begets the highest level of learning. Cinema Paradiso is my all-time favorite film and "Chronicles," by Bob Dylan, my all-time favorite book.
