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.
And if you believe all this you're probably stupid enough to hire me. Please see my contact page for details.
