During my employment with Live Nation's Media & Sponsorship department at their NYC location, I brought to the table new capabilities for in-house video production on the premises. The key functions of my work there was to help the Global Media Sponsorship team facilitate new corporate partnerships, and help maintain existing partner relations.

The Live Nation Channel On Yahoo! / Backstage with Citi
This recap video was created to illustrate the highlights of the Live Nation Channel on Yahoo!: a different LN concert streaming every day, and Backstage with Citi, a short-form original video series where either Katie Couric or Lindsey Parker interview a Live Nation artist participating in the concert-streaming program; both hosted on Yahoo! Live. This version of the video was shown at a Citi Town Hall meeting, and therefore focused on Citi Group's involvement in the program and some of the benefits for cardmembers that result from Citi's ongoing partnership with Live Nation.

Relapse is a smaller but widely renowned label that's known for signing some of the best bands in modern extreme metal. Interning for them was the time of my life and an ideal chance for me to really push myself and see what I was capable of as a director. The label and each of the bands were an absolute pleasure to work with. I was given massive creative freedom, free admission to killer shows, and gained exposure in the music scene that's closest to my heart. All of the videos on this page were produced, directed, edited and animated entirely by me, with love, and some crazy hustling.
UNKIND "Kehtoon Tapetut" (Official Lyric Video)
Lyric video for Finnish band using assets of Jacob Speis' album art from their 2013 release Pelon Juuret. Published June 28th 2013
REVOCATION "Fracked" (Official Music Video)
Found-Footage with animation and crude VFX, made for technical death metal band's 2013 self-titled release. The song itself is about the negative impacts of fracking and the fossil-fuel industry's greed on innocent people and the earth itself. Inspiration for style includes late-80s thrash metal music videos, Terry Gilliam, and Jamie Reid (a stubbornly perpetual influence of mine). Published October 17th 2013
INDIAN "Rhetoric of No" (Official Music Video)
Warning: NSFW Video contains some disturbing imagery and very dark themes. The song is a bold and abstract commentary on sexual assault, focusing on it's psychological elements. My visual interpretation was guided by the lyrics, specific gory imagery as per the band's request, symbolism, and above all Horror; mainly the two significant horrors I felt were present here: that which resides in the mind of the offender, driving his actions, and that which is planted and left to fester in the victim. Intrusion was another word that permeated my thought process. It was a challenging, sometimes an emotional subject to work with, but I felt completely up to it. I believe it's an important one to discuss; it's a very real thing, it's horrifying, and problems aren't solved by pretending they don't exist. I think the least that any of us can do is keep the conversation going.
Made for the doom metal band's 2014 release From All Purity
