To the best of my ability to be objective, I have an unusually broad skill set that allows me to speak conceptually about what is required
Experience15 years of client work as a digital filmmaker; lots of marketing strategy, branding and consulting work at the same time; design work always on the side; lots of filmmaker training and classroom appearances; many keynote-speaker opportunities. All of this came after a 20-year stint in features as a production designer and second unit director. Somewhere in the middle I cut my teeth in television as an associate producer, a writer, a title designer, and a composer of music cues.
EducationMy education was in the above-referenced trenches; I have an Emmy (for writing in the first season of "Rugrats"), a Clio (for commercials for New Video), and a Gold Award from the Houston International Film Festival for a half-hour film made for PBS.
SpecialityStrong suits: developing a concept that can be executed well within a client's budget; bringing the best out of performers; being able to maintain a strong sense of purpose and intent while coping with distracting production and post-production issues; keeping a cast and crew on track and focused; being able to articulate concepts and secure buy-in; clarifying complex ideas in highly memorable ways for students; giving very helpful and specific direction to colleagues.
