I ALWAYS CHECK MY MESSAGES BUT RARELY CHECK MY WALL HERE...SO IF YOU WANT TO MESSAGE ME, THE WALL IS NOT THE BEST METHOD!
Howdy! Should you choose to read on, and not many do these days, know a few things about me first:
If I add you or request to add you it is NOT because I want to sell you anything or want anything from you. I absolutely love connecting people to try to help them do better. I know that is at times odd for this business and probably more rare than common. More than one person here has written me a nasty note saying I just like having a big network and they do not want to be a random connection. I do NOT believe in random connections! While size really does not matter and I cannot see how we are still having that conversation, know that a big network combined with a desire to help one and other builds amazing and powerful connections. So there ya have it...that's what I care about. So come correct, and stop selling and pushing so hard, and we may just eventually do business together or you may meet some creative and wonderful people I know, whom I both adore and have deep respect for.
OK...So, I am a Film/Television and Music Producer, Director, Graphic Designer, Art Director, Event Producer and Branding Expert originally from Kansas City. I have 13 companies and live in San Francisco and travel often. My Branding and Design Agency is called Reflectur I've produced feature films, concerts, commercials, events and amazing projects with wonderfully creative teams. We have won over 1500 awards both nationally and internationally for our work and I am a well known public speaker on the issues of Creativity, Branding, Connecting, Relationship-based Networking and Entrepreneurship. I'm Googleable! LOL :-) My book "Curiosity Thrilled the Cat" will hopefully be published in 2019 if I get my ass moving! I have my TEDx talk on my site as well as my "Art of Man" interview at:
My newest passion project is The Box SF. We are an event and meeting space, shooting space, letterpress shop and 1850's mercantile/store with the largest antique ephemera and advertising archive for sale in North America. A amazing vintage location! The top floor is our high end event and meeting space, we have 3 private production suites and the pressroom and mercantile. In the basement is a Speakeasy! we rent the space for everything from networking events, to film, television and video shoots as well as still shoots, weddings and wine tastings day or night 365 days a year. The store on the ground floor is designed to look like an 1850's country store and is often used as a shooting location!
I'm happy to connect with anyone to help them do better and have combined networks of over 250,000 people on over 100 sites and pages as well as in my personal database. I also work with individuals on their own personal brands and projects, and coach them in a variety of ways...more on that below.
Additionally, I produce a very popular but intimate networking event worldwide. Currently it's been in 17 cities and 5 countries. It's called The Art of Active Networking It is not like any "networking" event you have been to. So if you really want to learn to make deep lasting relationship-based connections visit the site, and join my email lists for your city, if your city is not yet listed let me know and we will add it promptly. Over 25,000 people have attended. Many of them are working Creatives! I will bring the event to any city that can get 100 people to attend.
I am on well over 100 Social Media Sites including Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Google+, Twitter, ASW etc., etc...click that page link above or type it in, and connect with me everywhere you use! I love connecting people and will open my networks to you too as long as you play well in the sandbox with others!
Now, and I am serious about this, but most won't take the time to read this or to answer it: How can I help you do better, be better known, and to build your own personal brand right now? It's not about your talent first, it's about your relationships...Once you have great relationships the good stuff starts! I do not work for free and will do my best to offer advice and consult but if you really want serious help with your career, project or brand, like most here you will need to engage and hire me, just as I do you!
I am rarely interested in producing unsolicited scripts and projects for film or television, we have many projects in the works already and I am not currently accepting new film or television submissions. We are accepting new branding and promotional clients at Reflectur all the time and have worked on some of the biggest films and television properties out there, including The Dark Knight, Avatar, Transformers, G.I. Joe, Paranormal Activity, 24, Prison Break, Family Guy, Morning Glory, Robinhood, Pink Panther and Star Trek. I am always interested as well in hearing new musical artists for our record label Republic of Sound.
Finally, while I live in San Francisco and am headquartered here, more often than not you will find me in seat 3E on United Airlines headed somewhere to produce, shoot, design or create something. Our studios are in a beautifully historic building in the South of Market area that was once the William Randolph Hearst Printing Plant!
I do hope to hear from you! Remember the power of us all working together is so much greater than anything we can accomplish on our own! If you actually read this far, ask me about #MYGIVE4 and how it might just change your life!
BE WELL, BE CREATIVE, BE GREAT, BE GIVING!

Unique traits: Smarter than your average bear, I process creative ideas at a high rate of speed and am a great initial consultant on projects. I love connecting with cool people! Help the people I know and you will be in my circle, sell, push and take constantly and you are gonna get a lot more lonely! This is a business built on relationships. Once you fully grasp that, things get a lot easier and doors open! ASK ME ABOUT #MYGIVE4 FINALLY, I HAVE NOT UPDATED MY IMDb PROFILE IN YEARS, I'VE BEEN TOO BUSY, IF SOMEONE WANTS TO HELP ME LET ME KNOW!
