attended the University of Virginia and the USC Peter Stark
Producing Program (MFA). His thesis short film and directorial debut---The Five-Cent Curve--screened at various film festivals, including Tribeca, Palm Springs, and Sao Paulo. Additionally, it was nominated for a Student Academy Award. After graduating, he realized his interests lay with comedy spots, not narrative work, and decided to pursue a career in the commercial world full time. Since then, he has won various awards (one $10,000 and another $25000), which garnered him some meetings with commercial houses, but nothing has led to full time professional work. He will continue to strive towards that goal!
