I always try to create an environment where the actors, crew and agency all feel invested and involved, a scenario where everyone feels their ideas are welcome and that their opinions are valued. I like the process and think it should be fun. I definitely don’t work in a vacuum. I think I’m a good problem solver from a creative and production standpoint.

Ultimately, I thoroughly enjoy the production process, and love being the guy who brings the pieces together.”
