Curriculum Vitaé


I have developed a number of professional skills, and earned a living doing everything from videography, to graphic design, to computer programming, to expert time traveller... (Seriously!... But I can only manage to travel forward one minute per minute.) Due to my varied array of creative knowledge, it is impractical to articulate all my experience in a single resume. Therefore, I offer multiple resumes, showcasing my capabilities and pinpointing accomplishments, across multiple fields of expertise.

Web Developer

I have been doing professional web development since 1998 for the likes of Walt Disney Studios, ESPN, ABC Television, Weider Publications, American Idol, and the World Trade Center.

Creative Director

Having decades of experience in artistic industries and computer engineering, I was first promoted to a Creative Director position at the age of 28.

Graphics UX/UI Designer

Beginning in 1997, I have been doing graphic design advertising generating $30,000 to $100,000 of weekend sales, and designed wholesale websites which generate approximately $60 million a year.


Since 1997, I have published 12 books, including 6 novels and multiple short stories in various anthologies.


I have taught classes in photography at Walt Disney Studios and my photographs have appeared in art galleries from Cleveland to Hollywood.


Since 1993, I have worked as a stand-in and production assistant on Academy-Award-nominated Hollywood films, in addition to writing and directing my own award-nominated shorts with over 51,000 subscribers and 7 million views on YouTube.


Over the years, I have had the honor to achieve numerous career goals, thanks to the assistance of a diverse fellowship of brilliant and talented individuals. These bright and gifted people have been kind enough to share a few words, regarding their opinions of my prowess and work ethic.


Residing in Southern California, I can be reached for any number of creative projects and collaborations using the address provided below.
