My day job is directing TV commercials, I have made award winning shorts and have several feature film projects on the go.
So what makes me different from the other 2000 film directors with websites exactly like this?
I sing Opera. I am extremely blessed to have a voice that extends up to a high C. I have sang at such venues as La Scala in Milan, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg, and the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires. I was also the leading tenor of the Metropolitan Opera in New York City for 5 consecutive seasons.
My singing always keeps a film crew upbeat. I believe an upbeat film crew works faster and more efficiently thus delivering better results.
Thanks for dropping by.
