Art was formerly best known for his 20+ years experience on film sets as a commercial & television director and producer...
...now all he wants to do is drive.
His second career now, and his favorite, is his love of performance driving and racing.
Art has 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 he worked closely with racing star Danica Patrick. The two struck up a friendship, and Danica would invite Art to hang out with her and the engineers at her races, and being a self admitted science geek, Art was captivated by the technology and the scientific principles or racing - not to mention the cars, smells, sounds...oh and the speed. So he started asking a lot of questions, including - teaching him to drive. He was hooked.
Since then as a driver, Art has won awards, received national certifications, and keeps trying to get his hands on anything that burns energy of one kind or another.
He has flown planes, helicopters, driven a train, an ambulance, boats, and was even a consultant for two different electric motorcycle companies on their superbike projects.
Art has also become a high performance driving and racing instructor for racing, private security and law enforcement, and worked for the legendary Porsche Factory as a prototype test driver where he was one of the lead test drivers who helped develop Porsche's $7 billion dollar all electric Taycan project. Obviously now he drives for film, television and commercials too.
He'll drive any car on camera, or any camera car behind the camera. Just call him and ask - you'll see.
