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