I was best known for my 20+ years experience on film sets as a commercial & television director and producer...
...now I all I want to do is drive.
My second career now, and my favorite, is my love of performance driving and racing. I even went so far as to get my Class A License so I can literally drive anything on wheels, including 18 wheelers and buses. (I have my motorcycle license and full competition racing license too.)
I've directed everything from record setting Super Bowl Commercials pioneering 360 and VR filming, to being a staff director on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live. But it was on the set of that Super Bowl Commercial where I worked closely with racing star Danica Patrick. We struck up a friendship, and Danica would invite me to hang out with her and the engineers at her races, and being a self admitted science geek, I was captivated by the technology and the scientific principles or racing - not to mention the cars, smells, sounds...oh and the speed. So naturally, I started asking a lot of questions, including - teaching me to drive. I was hooked.
Since then as a driver, I have won awards, received national certifications, and keep trying to get my hands on anything that burns energy of one kind or another.
I have flown planes, helicopters, driven a train, 18 wheelers, fire trucks ambulances, police cars, SWAT trucks, Model A's, boats, a million electric cars, and was even a consultant for two different electric motorcycle companies on their superbike projects, and ran an international racing team...which won LeMans by the way.
I have also become a high performance driving and racing instructor for racing, private security and law enforcement and the military, and worked for the legendary Porsche Factory as a prototype test driver where I was one of the lead test drivers who helped develop Porsche's $7 billion dollar all electric Taycan project. Obviously now I drive for film, television and commercials too.
I'll drive any vehicle on camera, or any camera car behind the camera. Just give me call.
