I'm a film and video director, producer, writer, and editor based in Cleveland. I spent over fifteen years in New York City, working with clients including MTV, Food Network, HGTV, AOL, and Discovery Channel. In 2009 I wrote and directed the mockumentary feature film May the Best Man Win, which was distributed by IFC Films and seen on the Sundance Channel and Video On Demand. In 2011 I created and hosted the Foodnetwork.com series What Would Bobby Do?, a humorous take on my many years editing cooking shows for celebrity chef Bobby Flay. I've worked with talent including Jimmy Fallon, Horatio Sanz, the Property Brothers, and Chris Gethard.
In 2014 I stepped into the role of Network Executive for HGTV & DIY Networks, part of the Scripps family, where I helped develop new programming and talent, and oversaw productions to ensure they met brand specifications. In 2015 I came home to Cleveland to be with family and embark on the latest leg of my career, as a writer-director of commercials and industrials for corporate marketing groups and ad agencies. My Cleveland-based clients include Lincoln Electric, the Adcom Group, and the Cleveland Clinic.
