View my portfolio

I design, build, launch, and manage new TV shows, networks, apps, and platforms. 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, the Republic of Georgia's National Communications Commission, Bill Maher, D.L Hughley, Howard Stern, Gayle King, Conan O’Brien, David Letterman, and Katie Couric.

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’m a 600+ hour instrument-rated commercial pilot with tailwheel, complex, and high performance endorsements. I also advise media and tech companies and military and government agencies, serve on boards of directors, and teach graduate media studies.
