I'm a commercial and music video director based in Los Angeles and represented by Bullitt Branded.  

Bullitt is a production company founded by The Russo Brothers (directors of Captain America: Winter Soldier and Civil War, and upcoming Avengers 3,4), Justin Lin (Fast and Furious, Star Trek: Beyond) and Todd Makurath.  

I've directed spots and branded content for clients such as Reebok, GE, Lincoln Motors, Stoli Vodka, and US Airforce,  for agencies including Droga 5, BBDO NY, Venables Bell, Martin Agency, Anomaly, Publicis Paris, and Hudson Rouge. 

Before becoming a full-time director in 2015,  I worked as an Associate Creative Director and Art Director at agencies such as BBDO NY, Anomaly, and Crispin Porter + Bogusky.
