In addition to creating some commercial and promotional pieces in NYC, I'm also headed to Raleigh, NC to shoot a promotional video with Betaversity and help launch their latest product, a mobile prototyping lab called a 'Betabox' at Raleigh's first ever Triangle Maker Startup Weekend.
This event is an innovation and entrepreneurship focused weekend for makers, engineers, and designers of all kinds. Stay tuned for pictures and video of the event!

This week I'll be headed to San Francisco with Betaversity, the prototyping makerspace startup that I worked with last fall to produce a short promotional piece. I've been working with Betaversity on various design projects since the launch of the UC Davis Betaspace, and they are an amazing team with big things ahead. In San Francisco, we'll be interviewing various hardware entrepreneurs at Techshop and Jawbone to create a documentary about hardware innovation and entrepreneurship. Stay tuned for pictures, video, and more exciting things ahead.
In addition to working with Betaversity, I've also done some promotional video work for a really great design thinking startup called The Design Gym. The Design Gym teaches and facilitates design thinking and innovation workshops for clients looking to innovate in their industry, and students looking to learn and explore design further. Stay tuned for a video of The Design Gym soon!
In addition to these video projects, I've been working on a number of other side projects, including a lot of writing (both short stories, treatments, and screenplay).
Stay tuned for more updates as these projects progress! In the meantime, check out my recently updated WEBSITE and portfolio.

Crime/Drama - 138 minutes
David O. Russell
The two lead characters (Christian Bale’s Irving Rosenfield and Amy Adams’ Sydney Prosser) were ruthless, cunning, dynamic con artists throughout the entire film, until the ending when, after they pull off their biggest con, they decide to become art gallery curators and live a quiet, subdued life. I found this ending to be a forced, contrived arrangement so that the film could be wrapped and packaged with a bow on top.

Betaversity is a startup formed by Lucas Arzola, Blake Marggraff, and my good friend Sean Maroni. They've since brought on another teammate, Michelle Lozada. Betaversity serves as a consulting firm that helps Universities and other institutions start innovation spaces.
Over the next week, I'll be documenting the launch of their first innovation space at UC Davis. Stay tuned for some great pictures as the Betaversity team takes the first step in their journey of entrepreneurship with their startup!
