       Howdy partner - I joined Frequency in July of 2017 to lead Business Development and Distribution across the MVPD / OTT partner channels.  We also work with a number of service and platform providers that integrate into Frequency’s platform - I’m also involved in these types of partnerships.

       I come from the online media world having worked most recently for GoPro’s Entertainment Group and Hulu - where I joined in 2011 and was responsible for distributing Hulu’s subscription service to mobile and living room platforms.  Was fortunate to be a part of the team that was responsible for launching Hulu on Apple TV, Amazon’s Fire TV, Chromecast and a host of many others.

       My career began at the William Morris Agency delivering mail, making endless copies of scripts and answering the phone for the agent I was lucky enough to have worked with in the Corporate Consulting Group.  A very cool client, Amp’d Mobile, hired me away to handle content acquisition for their mobile service.  Amp’d was one of the first companies on the planet to icense traditional media content from the networks and studios in addition to producing its own original content, which would later find its way to Comedy Central - an industry first.  When Amp’d imploded, I joined the same team at Clearwire where I geeked out and learned about the next generation of wireless networks and mobile services for smartphones.  

       I’m a 3rd generation - LA native and attended Tulane University in New Orleans, LA.  I currently reside in Los Angeles with my wife, two beautiful daughters and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
