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'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.
