When everything's on the line, I'm the guy you want to take the shot. It doesn't matter if it's 24fps or a single killer frame. For me it's all about creating compelling stories and capturing beautiful imagery for clients and brands.
I've directed international campaigns for major brands and advertising agencies. I've been fortunate to work with clients such as Footlocker, Nissan, ESPN, ABC, FOX, NHL to name a few.
Branded is about putting content before advertising. Social is about connecting directly your audience. I feel the magic happens when they both intersect. My clients include FOX, ESPN, Ubisoft, Nissan, Footlocker and international clients. My experience is broad and I've done everything from directing narrative content for MARVEL properties, shooting a digital campaign with 12 NFL legends/ Heisman winners, to traveling the world to pollinate social platforms with fly lifestyle content.
I worked with FOX Broadcasting and writers from MARVEL'S The Gifted TV show to direct post credit bonus scenes that played immediately after various episodes. They were also rolled out across FOX's social platforms.
This is a branded music video for Ubisoft to promote the video game release of “The Crew 2” in the German market. I created the concept and script with the agency and served as Executive Producer. It’s featuring the hip hop artist, Summer Cem, one of Germanys hottest rappers.
I partnered with ESPN Creative Works to write and direct this project for Footlocker with NIKE. Talent: NBA Champion Kyrie Irving.
This is part of a digital campaign I did for TBWA\Chiat\Day that was a co branded effort between Nissan and ESPN featuring 12 Heisman winners- most of which went on to become NFL legends.
This social activation happened in Sri Lanka. The mission was to create a variety of organic branded content for Roadster, an Indian clothing company. The project was an overwhelming success and out activation was the #1 trending thing on Twitter in India. Check out the impact video for a rundown.
I've been working on feature film projects of various budgets since 2004, with my highest profile projects being with 20th Century Fox and Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes. I've also directed two Short films. My most recent short, Hearts Gamble, appeared in film festivals all over the world and racked up many awards. I cant share it publicly online because of developments behind the scenes but if you'd like to screen it please contact me for the password to view the film.
Fashion, lifestyle, sports, automotive, travel and advertising are some of the things that find themselves at the business side of my lens. I love the intimacy of the photographic process and creating projects that will be seen by millions with a fraction of the crew I have on my film sets. My clients include Audi, Infinity, Spike TV, University of Michigan, Oklahoma.gov & Lamborghini. Some of the agencies are Chrispin Porter Bogusky, Venables Bell & Partners, Saatchi & Saatchi, Campbell Ewald and Draft DDB.
I was fortunate to have my photos featured in Audi's R8 Super Bowl commercial, directed by Craig Gillespie. Check out the spot below.
Blah, blah, blah, I'm dope. Blah, blah, blah, you'll love working with me. Blah, blah, blah, I'm talented. Lets skip all that and I'll just let you in on the real interesting stuff... I grew up in the US, Asia and Europe before graduating high school in Frankfurt, Germany. My first gig was illustrating album covers for Sony Music Germany and I also played semi pro football in Frankfurt at 18. I turned down a guaranteed spot on the reality show Survivor. In college I lived in a small zoo and took care of 99 african fruit bats, 12 capuchin monkeys, 5 opossums and tribe of evil peacocks. I've been on billboards, and TMZ.com. People say I look like Usher. Every pro athlete I've shot won a championship a few years later. I love ice cream and motorcycles but not necessarily in that order.
