Hi Berndt,

It's a pleasure to e-meet you. I love what you've built at the Bear.

I, too, am a director who is always looking for honey out in the wild. That is why I have become a multi-disciplinary creative who is easy to work with and is happy working as a one-man band or leading a crew. 

I have over a decade of experience working in-house at various Omnicom agencies, including BBDO. I have also worked with freelance clients and as a vendor for small to mid-size agencies. 

Below is a short, curated list of my directing work. It also includes my work as a motion artist, as many clients appreciate the multiple skills I bring to the table.

Dutch Masters | Craft Syndicate

Social Campaign docu-series following the winners of a creative mentorship contest. Low budget, one-man band production. Also responsible for editing, color, sound mixing and final delivery.

Amazon Pay | Benefits

A Campaign for Amazon Pay's benefits. I directed and produced these spots with a modest budget, so we had a proper crew and cast. I also designed and animated all on-screen graphics, colored, edited, and delivered the final spots to Amazon.


A web series I created, produced, and directed. Each episode is 100% improvised on the spot. All we figure out beforehand is the day, time, and location to meet up. I designed and animated the intro.


It's here - might as well embrace it. Here are a few experiments in AI. It's early days, and every month is a new, radical push forward. But here are three samples of my experiments.


Want to see more? There's more to share. Please LMK what you'd be interested in seeing.

A little about myself:

Son of Mexican-German, immigrants


My parents took this photo moments before they arrived in New York to start their new life in the States. Yeah, dope. I know. 

Ex-Rock & Roller


Before directing commercials, I was famous in Canada. I love Canada.

Inspiring the future


I love sharing the joy of filmmaking with my daughters. Spielberg would be so proud [of me].

Latte Arteest


I am perfecting my work as an impressionistic latte artist. This piece is entitled, "Nice try, daddy, but that's not a heart."
