In his early career as a sports reporter, he worked for the Long Beach, California Press-Telegram and used his writing skills to produce content for the iconic news magazines Time and Newsweek.
Joining Warner Bros. Television in the publicity department altered his career trajectory and jettisoned him to stints at Paramount Pictures, where he served as head of national feature film publicity, and the Samuel Goldwyn Company, where he served as Head of Worldwide Marketing. At Goldwyn, he spearheaded a number of Academy Award campaigns and introduced audiences to the then unknown talents including director Ang Lee, actor/director Kenneth Branagh, and director Anthony Minghella – all soon-to-be Oscar winners and nominees.
Helping to usher in a era of television, he formulated the campaign for the ground-breaking television series “American Gladiators,” the precursor to numerous copy-cat shows still dotting the landscape today.
As a lead consultant for Robert Redford’s Sundance Channel, he was instrumental in providing framework for today’s highly regarded television destination, leading efforts to raise global awareness and the channel’s unique identity through innovative marketing-communications campaigns.
