Nice to meet you...
I am a designer, photographer, director, marketer, programmer, editor, producer, and creative jack-of-all trades. I specialize in studio design builds, capturing or running stand-up comedy shows, and storytelling. I am very good at making things that people want to engage with.
Why consider me?
I directed so many projects, I stopped counting. Worked well over 15 years alongside high-level business executives before I moved to California in 2019. I know how to sell an idea very well. I ran operations for few comedy venues since I moved to Los Angeles, including creative branding, social media, and marketing. Now I promote comedians and actors independently. I also book and run my own comedy shows. I can build you a podcast studio, then edit your episodes from start to finish. Consider me your one-stop-shop.

I moved across the country seeking creativity and talent...
Who have you worked with?
Networking has never been so easy and fun than it is here in L.A. I have been fortunate enough to work with comedians and actors like Michael Rapaport, Harland Williams, Matt Rife, Brent Morin, and Tim Dillon to name a few.
Interests or values?
Laughing, art, music, and cinema are huge passions that have been with me my entire life. Loyalty is also a big one. The best relationships I've ever had all started with trust and a good idea.
What do they say about you?
Anyone who has worked with me knows they can rely on my ability to understand their vision. I tend to personally handle everything from start to finish. If you hand me a project, no matter the level of complexity, I will get it done correctly the first time around.
My biggest weakness is working too much and trying to make it perfect. I truly believe everything just takes hard work which is most likely why I find it so hard to simply stop and take a break.
What is your goal here?
I am looking for someone that can utilize and possibly challenge me. It doesn't matter to me if I'm leading a team, assisting the owner of a business, or working with talent. The payoff for me is helping other brilliant minds find success through my work.
Why so special?
I can offer so much more than pretty pictures because I am the audience and the consumer. I am a curious photographer, designer, illustrator, and wannabe cellist. I like to tell stories. I like to listen too.
