I love it when artists I work with have a breakthrough with their work and especially when they also get a job. But the satisfaction is based on artistic growth.

I am a film director and producer with 17 years of professional work experience on shows including House of Cards, Homeland, Marco Polo and both independent and studio films from Casino Royale to Our Little Secret for which I was recently nominated as best actor.

Have worked in all aspects of the film industry on both sides of the camera. The mindset of artistic creation and artistic development is the most important qualities to work.
