Stony Brook University
I'm an independent website contributor who produces and directs short, low budget films. My background is in the dotcom sector where I was offered an internship at a small mom and pop broadcast company in 1998. Enthralled by the prospect of what the Internet offered, I continued working in the dotcom industry, landing a job in 1999 with a large advertising firm, Bates Worldwide in NYC. I began my career as a junior designer and HTML web technician, learning the ropes of website construction by putting together online marketing packages. This experience led me to become interested in photography as a viable design element. I donated my time to a photography studio in NYC next door to the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). I studied and continued gaining knowledge regarding the multimedia world and, later, the fine art world where I was asked to be the gallery director and curator to a small Latin community center, founded in 1969. After three years, I relocated to Los Angeles and began filming documentary interviews, which I continue to do today. My work has grown and I'm currently in the process of organizing my own art blog with the assistance and dedication of other talented individuals, in the ad world and art world combined.
