In my role as a feature film's Graphic Designer I create items for the Art Department, Set Decoration, Props, and Wardrobe that play within the film. This includes everything from signs, logos, billboards, posters, book jackets, magazine covers, to flooring, wallpaper, textiles, and fine art.

Over the course of my career I've designed for films of all periods, past, present and future. In addition to graphic design I also work extensively in Photoshop, both for visualization of sets and artwork, as well as photo composites and retouching of actor's images.

I'm available for work wherever the project is located. Inquiries about projects outside of the film industry are always welcome.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK
10.22: My New York string of work continues with the HBO Pilot "Codes of Conduct" co-written and directed by Steve McQueen ("12 Years A Slave", "Shame"). This follows a three month stint on the Jonathan Levine directed "Untitled XMAS Project which stars Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon Leavitt and Anthony Mackie, and a couple of weeks on Marvel's new series for Netflix, "Daredevil".

SHOWCASED!
06.20: I'm proud to be the showcased member of the Art Directors Guild for the next week!

RED BAND SOCIETY PILOT
05.14: The show has been picked up to series, production will remain in Atlanta where the Pilot was shot.

03.17.14: I've been working for several weeks on this new TV Pilot episode from Amblin Television and ABC Studios. The hour long drama is an American version of a Spanish series about teens with serious illness who bond while living in the teen ward of a large Los Angeles hospital. The series stars Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer. The production is currently in it's second week of filming in Atlanta, GA (Damn those state tax incentives). Fortunately I'm doing my work from home in sunny L.A. where we just enjoyed a morning jolt from a 4.4 earthquake!

RECENT PROJECTS:

McFARLAND
November 9, 2013: I've been working on the feature film McFARLAND starring Kevin Costner and Maria Bello. The film is being directed by New Zealander Niki Caro who is known for WHALE RIDER. The film is set in 1987 and tells the true story of how football coach Jim White switched gears and created a championship cross country running team with the children of immigrant Central Valley California farm workers. Not only did it change these students lives but as the years went on cross country racing became an institution at McFarland High School. The film is being designed by the award winning Richard Hoover.

HOSTAGES
August, 2013: I completed work on the second and third episodes of this new drama on CBS TV. Projects for EP102 featured a brand new signage system for the show's hospital set which was a completely redesign by Production Designer Vaughan Edwards. Other projects included phone and computer screen graphics and a wide array of props and signs. I'll be posting this work, much of which didn't make the final cut very soon.

THE BLACKLIST
April 11, 2013: I've just finished work on "The Blacklist", a one hour FBI crime drama pilot produced by Sony Television for NBC. The pilot was directed by Joe Carnahan ("The Grey") and stars James Spader ("Boston Legal"), Megan Boone ("Blue Bloods"), Diego Klattenhoff ("Homeland"), Harry Lennix ("Commander in Chief"), and Ryan Eggold ("90210").

HOUSE OF CARDS
February 1, 2013: "House of Cards" is available on Netflix today, and I've added my photo composite work from this project to the site. You can also see some of the digital restoration I did to artwork used throughout the Capitol office sets. All tolled I worked on over 100 pieces of art over the course of nine weeks last spring.

May 25, 2012: I've just finished my work on David Fincher's American adaptation of the 1990 British political series "House of Cards". I retouched and restored over a hundred works of art and photography for the series Capitol and Newspaper office sets, and have been doing quite a bit of photo composite work as well. The series will stream on Netflix in 2013, it stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright.

CBGB
July 9, 2012: I've recently wrapped up work on this film recreation of the early history of the infamous New York rock club CBGB, birthplace of punk. This marks my seventh music project (six films and one TV special), it's really quite amazing that all these have come the way of this music geek over the years! My contributions included numerous recreations period signs, and of course the club's famous awning lettering circa 1976 as well as what came before. As someone who went to the club as a teenager in the late 1970's it's really a thrill to be able to contribute to this film. Unfortunately for me the movie is being shot down in Savannah, Georgia and I'm in L.A., so won't get to see the recreation in person, however the film does have a neat tumbler site with plenty of photos: http://cbgbthemovie.tumblr.com/, and there are numerous photos of the club's exterior set that can be found by searching for images of it on Google.
