Los Angeles, CA, USA


I began my filmmaking career with some music videos that garnered accolades from MTV, Pitchfork, The New York Times, and Entertainment Weekly. My short The Grey Matter was the recipient of the CANAL + Grand Prix at the L'Etrange Festival, one of Europe's premiere genre film festivals. It premiered online as a Vimeo Staff Pick and currently available on AMC Networks streaming horror service SHUDDER. His short Therefore I Am, a surreal lo-fi time travel thriller is also a Vimeo Staff Pick and currently being developed as a feature film. My most recent sci-fi comedy short film, Progress Bar was co-written by an AI program (RivetAI) and featured on io9. I first ventured into television with the MTV branded series, The Gamekillers. Which was the recipient of a Cannes Lion and One Show award. I've directed alongside Academy Award winning director Spike Jonze for the Beastie Boys and traveled around the world to create documentaries, lifestyle, and content films for Apple. I've written and directed original short films for Adidas, American Express, the NBA and Tommy Hilfiger. I launched LYNX (AXE) with a series of films in China, as well as directed NFL superstars for both the NFL Network and Madden for Playstation. Most recently, I have been directing several episodes of soon to be announced series for an upcoming streaming network.
