Once upon a time,
I was a stereotypical film nerd.
Overweight and awkward, I preferred to spend time
fiddling with cameras and editing in my bedroom lair.
This turned into an outright passion,
the peak at which I found myself at
The University of Southern California Film School
in Los Angeles, CA making 16mm and super8 films with
other filmmakers from around the world.
Today, I use video to tell stories about
emerging memes and the common man.
I received a grant to create an original
web video series about working in the new
Gig Economy called: TASKONOMICS.COM
(Featured in BusinessInsider.com & Zagat.com)
I've interviewed CEO's and celebrities
ranging from Richard Branson to 50Cent,
slept on the streets for Wired.com to report the first iPhone release,
smiled my way through the Department of Homeland Security,
produced and edited brand videos for Inked Magazine, IBM, AT&T,
MTV, Open Society Foundations, Ogilvy Advertising,
Standard Chartered Bank, The Wall Street Journal,
filmed the Twin Towers fall on 9/11,
published a 'Guide to Film Schools and TV/Courses'
and followed models around the world for
celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury
and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
In my free time, I grab one of my super 8 cameras
and focus it on family members,
travel to Rome to find Fellini's film locations,
stay fit by boxing,
quote movies too often,
help my father with his iPhone and
manage a new blog walkofshames.com
And, though, I may no longer have
my lair to hide in, filmmaking
remains my sanctuary.
