"Crew is everything. With a solid team, anything is possible. I have been very fortunate to work with truly amazing crews in the States, as well as China! I thank them all for their support and company.

In recent months, I have shot multiple ad campaigns for Chevrolet in Shanghai with MRM//McCann. This year also brought global digital and print work for Infiniti in central California for the Designory in Long Beach, as well as directing an accessory video for the gorgeous Q60 Infiniti coupe.

Most mornings, I wake up feeling like I’ve won the jackpot: I’m blessed to work with so many talented and forward-thinking individuals who collaborate in a way that always enhances the result beyond anything I could do on my own. Each project, each day is different, allowing me to create in new and unique ways, so this work never gets old.

And who doesn’t want to travel to remote and mysterious lands, that only add to the emotion, gratification and sense of play this work yields?"
