I have worked in entertainment and advertising for over 19 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 have been a part of an amazing team as the US CMO, launching the 100% premium Japanese plant-based brand, Next Meats out of the US.
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.
