I am the Founder and CEO of Stage 32 and the Co-Founder and CEO of Fair Warning Productions. I am also an actor, voice actor, producer and screenwriter repped by David Greenblatt of Greenlit Creative. My screenplays have been semi-finalists and finalists at a variety of competitions including The Page, Nicholl, and Creative World Awards. I was an associate producer on Sam Levinson's first film, ANOTHER HAPPY DAY which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011 and featured Ellen Barkin, Demi Moore, Thomas Hayden Church, Kate Bosworth, and Ellen Burnstyn.
Prior to launching Stage 32, I was the founder, publisher and editor of RAZOR Magazine, a national men's lifestyle magazine which had a readership of 1.5 million at its peak. I was also a sports radio host on a variety of programs on ESPN and Fox affiliates. I have been a teacher, moderator, and panelist at various colleges and conferences (AFM, SXSW, London FF, SWW) around the world speaking on a variety of subjects including screenwriting, social media, and business. Additionally, I have appeared on MSNBC, CNBC, Fox News, and other news and entertainment outlets speaking on the film and tech industries. My book on crowdsourcing will be published by Focal Press in 2015. Oh, and I was once named one of People Magazine's Most Eligible Bachelors (no lie).
