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, Gayle King, Bill Maher, D.L Hughley, Howard Stern, Conan O’Brien, Katie Couric, and David Letterman.

Using my unique experience in comedy and news I 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 serve on boards of directors, teach graduate media studies, and advise media, tech, military, and government organizations.

I’m also an instrument-rated commercial pilot, certified flight instructor, and advanced ground instructor.
