Hi! I’m Graham. Welcome to Bushwick!

こんにちは。グラムと申します。ブルックリン区にようこそ。

I’m a television producer, writer, copywriter, editor, occasional actor, recovering lawyer, and possessor of a tremendous singing voice. I was born and raised on leafy avenues in Richmond, Virginia, but moved to Japan when I was ten. I lived there for ten years.

That’s why I can tell you with all kinds of authority: miso ramen is the best ramen.

Before moving to New York in 2013, I worked as a producer for a major Japanese television network, covering the White House, State Department, Pentagon, and the 2012 Election. While I specialize in facilitating Japanese production in America, I can help you with all your writing, editing, production management, field production, booking, research, social media, and camera needs.

Basically, I can make your creative vision come alive. Like Frankenstein. (Only much prettier, and far less likely to be met with torch-bearing villagers.)

Right now, I’m three hundred pages into writing my first novel. To have published one good novel, to see my name glossy and embossed on a cover, twinkling under halogen lights, that would be sufficient; to lead a life of letters would be a dream.

When not writing and producing, I enjoy running, reading, taking pictures, karaoke, playing around with photoshop, and wandering around New York City, where I gawk and tremble at the swirl of people and buildings as openly and open-mouthed as any tourist.

I'm also great at carrying things.

I’m also skilled at carrying things.

So, please, take a look around. I hope you enjoy it. Contact me if you need me.

Final Graham-Facts:

  • One strongly held belief: great cities smell. Tokyo stews in its wonderful trough of fish, rampant humidity, spoiling ginkgo nuts, and crackling sweet potatoes.
  • My all-time favorite shoot was of an abandoned nuclear silo that had been turned into an Bond-villian-esque apartment. Check it out on my production page.
  • I have suffered only one broken bone in my life: my skull. My parents think this explains many things.
  • On my first business trip, I was assigned to go undercover to film visiting North Korean dignitaries. The good news: I got the footage. The bad news: I am no longer welcome at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa in La Jolla, California.
  • There are many reasons to come to New York, but one that is not mentioned enough is the influence of Ghostbusters.
  • I count among my favorite storytellers Mark Twain, Philip K. Dick, Kurt Vonnegut, Joseph Heller, Thomas Pynchon, George Saunders, Zadie Smith, Italo Calvino, Joseph Conrad, Nabokov, Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Grant Morrison. That’s just for starters.
  • My karaoke 十八番 is ウルフルズのバンザイ!
