About

I direct commercials. I’ve tried to bring a strong POV, truth and emotion to the work that I’ve done.

My career began at Smuggler where I directed spots for global brands. Now I’m represented at M ss ng P eces, Independent, Skin and Bones, Carnibird and UTA.

I was an early experimenter in VR working with Chris Milk and Vrse (now Here Be Dragons). That led to speaking engagements at MIT and CES. My short film New Wave is available on the Within platform.

Prior to that I directed three feature length documentaries with the National Film Board of Canada. My film Nollywood Babylon premiered in Official Competition at Sundance and screened at major festivals.

Selected recognition includes a Gold Lion, a Gold Clio, a Webby, and a D&AD Pencil.

I was part of the Saatchi and Saatchi New Directors Showcase and won the Best Young Director at Cannes Festival of Creativity in 2010. I’m most proud of being chosen as the number one commercial by TIFF in their 150 Essential works of Canadian Cinema History.

When I’m not shooting, I’m writing and spending time with my family somewhere in the world.
