Integrated Creative Producer/Senior-Executive level
I love playing matchmaker for creative talent, advertisers and projects. Canny matchmaking is the centerpiece of a producer's work. The masterstroke.
Give me a board and a budget and I'll make introductions, host the engagement party, plan the wedding and deliver the baby. It's thrilling. Further, a lifetime of making original performance artworks gives me a rare and useful perceptive edge, practical insight, and compassion for the creative process.
I care about your dreams.
And I'll deliver on them. I've made 350+ motion picture commercial works all over the world, including South Africa, Hungary, Alaska, Hawaii, India, Brazil, England, Fiji, Greece, Mexico, New Zealand, Canada and The Czech Republic. I have special experience in building passion brands, in establishing and holding a brand’s expressive excellence, and inventing new approaches to directing real people and guiding the development of original musical scores.
