Top: Me at the NE Emmy® Awards (Boston, 2022)
Bottom: I recently got married! (Goldeneye, 2021)
Hi there! 🙂
🎥 I'm an Emmy® Award-winning director and editor for commercial and motion picture, with virtual production experience.
RAB In 2009, fresh out of college and working from a spare bedroom, I founded Rab Media, a hybrid production company/agency with a roster of absurdly-talented and wildly-accomplished directors worldwide. Our company quickly gained a loyal following, with clients including Capitol Records, Columbia Records, Sony, Universal, Epitaph Records, Fearless Records, Samsonite luggage, and more.
(+) I currently serve as Creative Director and Head of Post at (add)ventures, serving a roster of prestigious brands such as CVS Health, Hasbro, Stop & Shop, Staples, Honeywell, Sysco, Food Lion, Hillrom, Cyberreason, and more. Most recently, we have built our own virtual production soundstage, and we're leading the charge toward the future of filmmaking and content creation.
OCD I recently launched my latest company, Odd Creative Direction, offering post-production workflow consultation, particularly for brand content teams focused on social media.
📚 I've published a few Kindle books, and just finished my first full-length novel, Collections: In Debt We Trust.
🇩🇪 Ich spreche ein bisschen Deutsch.
🤔 I owned a cool, albeit stressful, escape room at one point, but then I sold the IP to a big company in Sweden, because it turns out I have an odd knack for salesmanship?
🎵 I occasionally compose music for projects (CVS Health, Hasbro, Staples).
🎞️ I have a documentary in production as of March 2022, with hopes of completion Summer 2024.
🍳 🍸 💿 🇯🇲 I love omelettes, cocktails, CDs, and sitting on the beach in Oracabessa, which is where I married a beautiful woman.
🚫 I don't typically use Emojis this much.
