Los Angeles based director of narrative films, branded content, and commercials – ready to travel.
Born and raised in Southern California but has yet to develop a tan.
I studied aboard at the University of London College (UK), and graduated from Art Center College of Design (B.F.A. with Distinction, Film Production) where my PSA, “GG Meeting”, debuted at the United Nation’s 60th Annual Conference for Climate Change and was a select feature by the Film Society at the Lincoln Center in New York City as apart the Live Earth world concerts simulcast.
Professionally, I'm grateful to have won multiple industry awards and held a variety of professional internships and industry fellowships including the Television Arts & Sciences Academy’s “Directing (Single-camera) Internship,” and have been shortlisted for the Cannes' Young Director Award, while my narrative short films and scripts have been recognized at film festivals around the country and community.
Travels and experiences the world around me and the ones I create in my head.
With a background as a musician and improviser (Groundlings, ComedySportz), I'm always in pursuit of human melodies layered in moments of truth-- with a slightly cheeky flare. My execution is guided by a narrative point-of-view that's informed by intent, then designed with dexterity. Which translates my style to have a penchant for performance-based storytelling and a spirit of playfulness within the frame.
Adjacent to a directing career, I work as a Creative Director in the advertising and in digital content developing, pitching, and producing/directing total market campaigns and content for clients like McDonald’s, Walmart, Lexus, Sam Adams, YouTube and Google.
