Samaritan Medical Center

Got up to picturesque Watertown, NY recently with the A team and director Eric Frick to film a commercial with The Martin Group for Walker Cancer Treatment Center, a brand new cancer treatment facility utilizing cutting edge tech. Will be going back to grab an exterior shot since it wasn’t completed, so looking forward to having more awesome sushi at Mizu Machi, OMG, amazing.

Recent adventures

Got down to the brand new National Comedy Center in Jamestown, NY recently for their grand opening and an interesting 1st Amendment panel discussion with Lewis Black, Paul Cambria, & Kitty Bruce, daughter of Lenny Bruce. The best part was the talk with Dan Aykroyd, Laraine Newman and writer Alan Zweibel from the original Saturday Night Live cast which brought back a LOT of memories for me.

National Comedy Center

If all that wasn’t fun enough, I also shot a series of quick fun interviews with Amy Schumer & Lewis Black for Tumblr.


I had the privilege of spending a few days with a crew from ATTN: on a fair housing piece in Buffalo for Zillow.


Spent some time in Olean, NY to shoot a commercial for Olean Area Federal Credit Union and discovered possibly the best Indian food on the entire planet at Tandoor.

Uncle Jumbo’s American Vodka

A few months ago (it WAS still cold out) local vodka distiller Nick Kotrides put director Eric Frick and I to work crafting his very first commercial shot in the Buffalo, NY area over one days time. Cracked corn, farm dogs, and fresh vodka, MMMMM mm.

Partnering gets it done.

Got over to Ingram Micro last week for a fun stills project with some of their staff. Awesome makeup stylist Josselyn Scott was on hand to lend the glam edge to our real people, and our friend Dina flew in from Ingram Micro in Irvine for the occasion.

Boom Boom Mancini

Got to meet Ray Mancini last week, former WBA lightweight title holder from 1982 to 1984 for an evening of boxing talk, autographs, and photos. With Entertainment brought Mancini into town for the packed event and I even got a little one on one film finance discussion with Ray who’s most recently a film producer.
