To quote Jerry Garcia:

Sometimes the light's all shinin' on me

Other times, I can barely see

Lately, it occurs to me

What a long, strange trip it's been - Grateful Dead

Hard to believe it’s been years since Dan Levinson and I started Moxie Pictures. After Moxie, I became a partner in Go Film, having the great fortune to work with Robert Wherry and Jonathan Weinstein.

It’s been an amazing run, working with the best production teams, the greatest directors, and the most talented agency folks. Over the course of my career, it has always been about doing work that I was proud of, which led to winning every award in advertising culminating with a Grand Prix win in Cannes.

I love the ad business but feel like it's a good time to follow some of my other passions. As an Executive Producer, mentoring and consulting with directors, producers, and friends starting new companies has always been a big part of my life. I hope I can continue to do that.

I think producing will always be part of my DNA, however, prior to Moxie Pictures, I directed television shows and commercials. Coming up, I literally worked in every aspect of the commercial industry, but hair and make-up, which I believe made me a better producer.

As a creative producer, I’ve loved the opportunities to write or work as a photographer, which I plan to do more of, so If you need some help, don’t hesitate to reach out.

I’m currently working on a number of personal projects, but maybe available if something fun comes up.

So thank you commercial industry, for the great friends, accolades, amazing projects, and once in a lifetime opportunities.

Be safe and stay well. Hope to see you soon.
