In Australia’s Red Centre for ESPN Films’ “THE COLLECTORS”

About

I’m a director, writer and producer, but I’m also known as the producer of the Academy Award(™)-winning visual effects of “THE MATRIX” and other blockbuster motion pictures, and the producer behind the creative and technical pipelines of the Academy Award(™)-winning animated film “HAPPY FEET”, also serving on director George Miller’s story team.  

​

I stand proudly on thirty years as a journeyman filmmaker, first in my Native New York City, then in over a dozen years in Hollywood, and now Australia, the epicenter of big-budget movie production in the Asia-Pacific hub — but still just a day away from wherever I need to be!

I’m a storyteller who’s been there, seen and done that…in a multitude of places, disciplines, technologies, trends and media.

​

The following pages tell a lot of that story…and hold a peak into what’s coming next.
