Bio

Geoffrey and President Clinton

I am a filmmaker, photographer, carpenter, mechanic, musician, and scuba diver–among other things. I have worked creatively and technically for every major television network, numerous feature films, Matador Records, Goner Records and more. I interned for President Clinton’s foundation and recently completed a year-long tenure producing for PBS. Organization fuels my efficiency; daydreams and bike rides fuel my imagination. I am fiercely independent and an outstanding team player. My deep passion for a do-it-yourself ethos and my sense of place have enabled me to develop many memorable projects, all of which are rooted in truth and honesty.

Giving people, including myself, something to believe in is very important now more than ever…and this is just the beginning.
