FOUNDER / CREATIVE DIRECTOR / CONTENT CREATOR DESIGNER / COMPULSIVE CREATIVE WITH LIMITED ATTENTION SPAN

CREATIVE DIRECTION Most recently I developed and oversaw branding and communication initiatives (video/ digital/ social media/ and traditional print & outdoor) for clients in technology (TechCrunch), global textile and garment collection and recycling (I:CO), dairy & organics (Stonyfield Organics), tourism (Princess Cruises), men’s grooming products (Layrite) and medical and sexual health campaigns. Over the years I’ve worked on global accounts including VW, SEAGRAMS, NIKON, SONY, CBS, UNIVERSAL, SINGAPORE AIRLINES, THERMADOR, B/S/H, and several local art institutions (LACMA, THE GETTY, THE SANTA BARBARA MUSEUM OF ART) and more.

TOPANGA FILM INSTITUTE collaborates with arts organizations locally and Internationally to explore the intersection of technology and storytelling to advance cultural diversity and understanding and create better communities. As such I have created or overseen numerous events, screenings, workshops networking opportunities etc. I’ve personally overseen open air screenings on hilltops in the Santa Monica mountains to a sold out shows at the Ford Amphitheater events and productions in collaborations with LACMA, SIMA (Social Impact Media Awards), The Creative Visions Foundation, Hola Mexico Film Festival, UCSB, UCLA, the Getty Museum, and others. We collaborate and showcase artists and filmmakers across the Los Angeles cultural landscape connecting with many of the LA niche communities in Dance, Music, Film, Arts and Technology.

INFRASTRUCTURE.ENERGY – Integrating Technology, Finance and Community for Microgrid As part of I.E’s (formerly known as Energizing Co.) management team I devised and implemented customer facing community engagement strategies relating to large scale energy infrastructure and microgrid projects. As such I organized events, a design charrette, town hall meetings and events that brought together leaders and proponents of government, utility, universities, urban planning, agriculture, arts & culture, innovation & technology, finance, trade tourism and production.

CoLAB  Joined Janek Dombrowa (JTD ARCHITECTS) and Bonnie Morgan (Messenger Mountain News) to develop their fantastic Topanga Canyon property Rosewood into a collaborative work environment, capitalizing on opportunities and trends shaped by an emerging sharing economy that have brought us spaces like WeWork and The HUB – 

CONTENT CREATOR, ARTIST I I have produced and collaborated on various award-winning short and feature film projects, exhibited works in group shows and have published a quarterly Magazine (CTLST*) and lately I've been experimenting with manufacturing purposeful goods and curating an online marketplace at CTLST_MARKTPLCE
