View Project

Created the tagline “Obsessable” for the STARZ / STARZ ENCORE network rebrand. Worked with Troika from pitch to launch as we integrated STARZ and ENCORE networks into a singular brand identity, crafting the brand voice through promos, on-air language, B2B materials, and social media. Helped develop internal guidelines for all aspects of communication, including use of music, edits, copy, and visuals.

League of Legends 2015 World Championships

In the lead up to the 2015 League of Legends World Championship finals, Riot Games wanted a series of a videos that would take the excitement level to new heights among eSports fans and newcomers alike. As teams progressed through the four rounds of the tournament, the videos would incorporate series footage, creating a compelling, dynamic narrative that led us right to the doors of the stadium in the final event. Working with Elastic, we created a series of 6 videos that aired separately throughout the competition, and on the big screens in the stadium at the final event. In addition, we helped conceive the visuals in the stadium at the actual finals.

The experience was showcased in AdWeek as an example of GE’s groundbreaking use of technology in marketing campaigns.

Since 2014, my friend Brendan Hughes and I have been hosting a weekly comedy podcast called Dad Jeans about how to raise children without becoming completely irrelevant. The jury is still out on whether we are succeeding in this mission, but people seem to like listening to us talk about it.

Independent Lens

Watch Episodes

For 11 years, the PBS series Independent Lens has been the premiere television showcase for feature-length documentaries. Every episode of Independent Lens begins with an introduction by the series host. For the past two seasons, the host has been Stanley Tucci, and the writer has been me. Basically, I got to watch amazing movies and then write about them for one of the best actors in the world. Just another day at the office.

A short film I wrote. Directed by Eric Kissack and starring Basil Smith, Anthony Crehan, Brian Huskey, and Jennifer Irwin. I got to wear a gorilla suit.
