    ABOUT ME

    Every image tells a story.

     

    I learned this when I started my career as a music video and commercial editor. 

     

    Born in the former Czechoslovakia and raised in Toronto, I studied film at NYU and eventually settled in Los Angeles.

     

    In 1996 I opened up Inside/Out, an editing boutique that eventually became Beast Editorial.  With my partners, we grew Beast into one of the largest commercial editorial companies in the USA with offices in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Austin, Chicago, Detroit and Atlanta.  

     

    For the next 20 years, I worked on everything from Activision to Zales…

    including every car, shoe, electronics, beverage and beer company in between.

     

    Along with my commercial clients, I've worked on long form projects for Oprah Winfrey and Michael Mann, and continued to be active in the music video industry cutting videos for Pink, Shakira, Faith Hill, TLC, Luther Vandross, REM, Katy Perry, and The Black Eyed Peas among others. I’ve collaborated with Linkin Park since 2007 on most music video content they’ve created and have worked closely with musician and entrepreneur will.i.am since 2009.

     

    Along the way I’ve won Clios, MTV Moon Men, Cannes Lions, an NBA Marketing Award and even a couple of Emmy Awards for directing a series of commercials for the Detroit Pistons.

    Since selling my interest in Beast, I’ve focused on writing and directing content and documentary work. I’ve done projects with the Academy Award  nominated Documentary Group and recently finished a film about Domestic Violence.

     

    I'm lucky enough to be able to travel the world doing what I love and in between

    all the madness I get to take photos.
