Story
Tagline
Creative Director | Filmmaker | Commercial Video Producer | Podcaster
Introduction
I'm an accomplished screenwriter, director, award-winning video producer, speaker and author. I'm the founder and creative director of Dare Dreamer Media, a boutique content marketing and video production agency specializing original branded content, promotional video production, podcast production, and social media marketing. Although I've done work for the likes of Apple, Adobe, Kodak and others, my passion is inspirational and cause-driven films for small and large non-profits and worthy causes.

Social Media

My blog DareDreamerMag.com is a rich resource of inspirational and educational writing on the art and business of filmmaking and photography.

Online Content Producer

As a producer of original online entertainment, I have produced or co-produced a number of other programming including Me2WeTV, Real Women Scrap TV, F-Stop Beyond: In Living Color, a handful of Dane Sanders‘ Photo Minute series, and the creator and executive producer of the first online reality TV show for and about professional photographers, “The Longest Day.”

Most recently I was the host and producer of the filmmaker's podcast, "Crossing the 180: The Filmmakers Podcast That Breaks the Rules", where I had such distinguished guests as Book of Eli co-director Albert Hughes, "24" DP Rodney Charters, DSLR guru Philip Bloom, and many, many more.

Writer

My wife and I co-wrote ReFocus: Cutting Edge Strategies to Evolve Your Video Business, published by PeachPit Press.

I'm a frequent contributor to both Professional Photographer and EventDV magazines.

Fun Facts

A little known fact about me: I used to dance on a professional swing dance Lindy hHp troupe in Los Angeles.
