Biography

I am a 5th generation Floridian and a proud father of three young and adventurous boys. My wife is a teacher and together we love to travel to beautiful beaches and mountains around the United States.

In my off time I love to go swimming with my boys and hang out by the pool. I also enjoy playing board games with friends, drawing cartoons for my boys to color, and cooking meals with fresh ingredients.

As Product Director I bring the vision and innovation that the livestream community deserves, and the unique perspective that the streaming industry requires. I’m a storyteller at heart with an eccentric career who has learned that intention and purpose-driven culture is the key to success. My film & television background along with my entrepreneurial spirit brought me to start a successful creative agency over thirteen years ago, working with some of the world’s largest and most trusted brands. I’ve directed the formation of one of the leading free stock video marketplaces and played a key role in the success of Vecteezy. Earlier this year my brother and I were awarded an EPIC mega grant to continue expanding the limits of nature development and simulation within the Unreal Engine. I’ve most recently enjoyed disrupting the stream design industry as the Product Director at Visuals by Impulse and working with my team to launch innovative tools and beloved products on our marketplace. My many years of visual storytelling, cultivating partnerships, and leadership experience has brought me the opportunity to help pave the way for gamers, creators, and brands as we redefine broadcast entertainment together.
