From small, cut-through local spots, music, corporate videos and internet content video to Superbowl spots and international TV ad campaigns.

I know how much agency creative and account service people have invested and what it takes to make all agency people and clients happy throughout the production process, by adopting the team vision and bringing creative production options and effective solutions.

I've worked with the best suppliers, and the worst - the best budgets and the worst, and I know how to get the highest quality results. I have an inclusive way of working that puts the team and the agency first.

I have been in the industry since 1990.
