Over two years in the making, many hundreds of hours of footage, and thousands of laps around the prison yard, we finally have a trailer! This is a beautiful, sometimes disturbing, account of the marathon run entirely inside the walls of America's most infamous penitentiary. I am proud to have been a part of this inspirational project, and to have gotten to know the filmmakers, coaches and inmates who make it all possible.

Fun times shooting cars & cupcakes at Mel's Diner...

A nice twist on the classic "Got Milk?" campaign. Produced by the very savvy, Jefferson Curry and Directed by the wildly talented Timothy Plain of Goodby, Silverstein and Partners. A huge thanks to a great crew and cast!!!

This PSA was written by my fiancée, Michelle during a 14 minute BART ride home. She intended to outline only a few key points but, using her own voice (she was a Foster Kid), ended up writing something that was super simple and beyond powerful. She read it to me as we walked home, and I knew immediately we had our script... We assembled a fantastic crew: Robert Caruso, the Director. Brian Benson, the Producer. I couldn't ask for a more talented and dedicated group folks. Massive thanks to everyone who worked on this. We made something we can all be proud of!!! Thanks you Stewart Foundation and Disney for making this happen.

Another successful campaign for 2016! This was the most popular one ever, with 93% approval rating! (Approval by whom, I don't know.) ;-)

3 cities, gorgeous locations, great team of filmmakers, and a ton of lans flairs...

Love the atmosphere in this piece. No lights. Shot from a Zodiac hand held with a Movi. No equipment was harmed... And the talent swam from the Farallon Islands back to San Fran (not for this spot, but still...)
