Before becoming a successful director, Jeff was a writer and creative director at some of the most highly regarded agencies in the country including Cliff Freeman and Partners and Wieden+Kennedy in both Portland and New York. His impressive body of work has received awards from D&AD, The One Show, Cannes Lions, Communication Arts and more. His work for ESPN’s Sportscenter is now a Harvard University case study.
While working as an executive creative director at JWT NY, Jeff made his directorial debut with several web films for Dominos. These spots earned him an Emmy nomination and inclusion in Shoot’s Annual New Directors Showcase.
Since then, Jeff has shot a compelling and diverse mix of high profile work for brands such as Hotels.com, VW, Toyota, Honda, Subway, Visit California, Build.com, Hefty, Amazon, Persil, Dunkin Donuts, Lowes, and Starburst. He has the gift of comedic timing and excellent improv skills, along with a terrific ear for dialogue.
Although deathly allergic to fish, Jeff has a deep love for fishing. Which is balanced by a deep loathing of the tuna melt.
