I love solving problems. Film problems. Marketing problems.
Making something beautiful, or meaningful, or both, out of an idea on paper.
I've been in film and advertising in one form or another for over 25 years,
as I blended my love for movies with a degree in advertising.
And right now I'm fascinated with the merging of formats,
from short form commercials to long form narrative.
My favorite director experience was with Christopher Guest -
I could not get Corky St. Clair in Waiting for Guffman out of my head.
And my fave celeb shoot is a toss up between hanging with Wayne Newton
in his Stardust dressing room, and a smooch from Joe Walsh.
I drove to Canada for a shoot the day after 9/11,
and have actually chatted with Andy Warhol for 15 minutes on advertising.
I'm deft at brokering all of the pieces –
the people, the ideas, the resources, the budgets, and the craziness
to get an even better product than we set out to do.
And have fun.
