CREATIVE DIRECTOR – PRODUCER – DIGITAL MEDIA
I don’t love labels, so I’ll get to the personal stuff about me first. I’m a family man, I love my life, my wife, kids and the rest of my family above all. My life long passions are, skateboarding, surfing, writing, art & design, cinematography, photography, Illustration, film & film making. I have studied art since childhood, I devour books on film making, story, fine art, history and sci-fi weekly. I’m a fourth generation Huntington Beach, California native. I love movies, fresh juice and slow cooking meats. When I began making a living as an illustrator in 1995, I left college and went into the professional art world full-time. I’ve never looked back. I started Circle 5 Productions Inc 5 years ago. Why the name Circle 5? My Grandpa Bart played the piano and always taught me about the “Circle of Fifths” and how all harmony can be related through the circle and its’ notes. Harmony and balance have always eluded me but something I strive for everyday. The name stuck. It is my goal to have Circle 5 Productions operating as a full scale production company someday, so I can produce my own films, and to help other film maker’s dreams come to life.
Now to the labels. I’m a Multidisciplinary Digital Media creator with 15 years of experience in Photography, Video Production and Digital Content Creation. I have played key creative roles for companies in action sports, technology, video gaming, fashion, cosmetics, and film. I enjoy a fast paced, deadline driven environment and I’m able to shift gears between several projects effectively while maintaining an organized work-flow, across multiple platforms. Above all, I’m a diligent creator and conscientious project manager in one.
