I'm a music video and commercial director based out of Toronto and New York
I’ve been directing, editing and shooting in one form or another since 2008. But my “big break” came in 2011 when a promotional video that I had shot and directed caught the attention of Diddy. The video had been passed on to him from an executive at Blue Flame Ad Agency in New York city. Once Diddy saw it he posted the video on Twitter.*
From there, I got commissioned to do 2 more promotion videos for Diddy, Blue Flame Ad Agency and for Ciroc Alcohol.
Those three promotional videos led to a chance to do a video cover for Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jean”. Lana Del Rey posted the video on her Facebook Page and MuchMusic tweeted it.
Just recently Mark Ecko’s Complex Magazine published a feature article detailing it all.
My latest work has included shooting a commercial for the clothing company Anchorsand with photographer Matt Barnes.
So there you have it, my story so far…
