View my portfolio

I design, build, launch, and manage new TV shows, networks, apps, and platforms. Currently I’m helping build a media academy for the Republic of Georgia's National Communications Commission.

Using my unique experience in comedy and news I also speak at corporate retreats and academic conferences on the history and future of television amid social media, cord-cutting, and mobile consumption and on the creation, dissemination, and consumption of Fake News.

I’ve worked for or with CBS, NBC, CNN, PBS, National Geographic, Comedy Central, TIME, People, HuffPost, Tribune Publishing, The Onion, AccuWeather, Virgin Mobile, the US Department of Defense, Bill Maher, D.L Hughley, Howard Stern, Gayle King, Conan O’Brien, David Letterman, and Katie Couric.

I’m an instrument-rated commercial pilot and love any content relating to aviation and space. I also advise media and tech companies and military and government agencies, serve on boards of directors, and teach graduate media studies.
