My sports and entertainment background includes years as a creative director for the Texas Rangers and Dallas Stars, with other sports and entertainment work on the side. I currently create advertising, develop television and film projects, and produce innovative communication of all kinds.
In 2014, Peter de Norville and I established FourNine Entertainment. The company has four distinct business divisions, they are FourNine Productions, which produces original sports, reality and documentary content for television, FourNine Films, which brings together the best of independent cinema and provides a platform for filmmakers to bring their vision to the big screen, FourNine Talent, which is a combination of traditional talent/artist/athlete management and brand/content producer and FourNine Management, which looks after our sports business interests.

Unique traits: I generally wear a distinctive beard. Also, I believe a commercially successful project can still be creatively fulfilling, because figuring out how to make it so is part of the creative process.
