Storytelling. It's an obsession.

Born & raised in Pittsburgh, PA.  Spent summers outside at camp in New England.  Cheered on the Wolverines at The Big House (that's University of Michigan). 

Packed the car with everything I had and headed West to Venice Beach, CA (a.k.a. Hollywood). Got a million different jobs on a million different, crazy, wild, sometimes corporate, sometimes-low-budg-sometimes-very-high-budg projects. 

Shipped off to grad school for Advertising. 

Started adventure racing! Traveled the globe competing in ultra-endurance events. Also traveled the globe filming unique projects for many clients. 

Landed in Napa, CA, and... traveled the globe again with a fanatical winemaker. 

Ended up in Texas.  Had twins (okay, the wife did, I just chase them).  Still sometimes traveling the globe to produce cool stuff when not pouring heart and soul into working with orgs dedicated to environmental and social justice.   

And so... I've conceptualized, produced, directed, and led way-outside-the-box multimedia & engagement projects for cult wine companies, major film festivals, global TV networks, plant-based venture capital firms, and world-changing nonprofit organizations. 

I'm equally adept at crafting impactful marketing strategy and creative content as I am packing through a sweltering tropical jungle to film a documentary. 

I love bringing my boundless energy and honed skills as a copy/script writer to every project, every day. 

The only thing I "specialize" in is engaging, impactful, difference-making strategy, leadership, and content creation.
