DIRECTING

My primary focus is to direct comedic and non traditional commercials—challenging expectations and “norms” and at the same time creating content that is both amusing and memorable. For web based spots, I utilized my public speaking/coaching abilities to achieve compelling performances from folks not familiar with being on-camera.
