I have worked in entertainment and advertising for over 20 years with experience ranging from MTV reality shows, HBO comedies, Universal Pictures Theatrical Trailers, award-winning digital branded content, and broadcast commercials.
My competence and discipline were founded through service with the US NAVY and are now harnessed to meet the challenges found within the wonderfully chaotic world of advertising & marketing.
Currently based in Japan as co-owner and creative producer of AtariPunk Tokyo, working with brands like adidas, Audi, and Infiniti.
In addition, I am currently overseeing marketing and branding for 2foods, the #1 plant-based fast casual and CPG brand out of Japan that is launching in the US in early 2024.
I have also consulted with other plant-based brands in Asia including Next Meats and Umami United.
In 2019, I departed the Publicis Groupe Japan as Head of Creative Production after working across brands such as SK-II, Lexus Intl., shu uemura, BMW Mini, and more.
Prior to moving to Japan, I was in Singapore working for Grey Group APAC, as Senior Executive Producer & Vice President on GlaxoSmithKline globally.
During off-hours, I am working on scripts I have been kicking around for ages, looking for my next amazing veggie meal/dessert, traveling throughout Japan, running too far, digging through crates looking for old-school hip hop/jazz records, or walking around the city with my x100v enjoying the fine art of street photography.
