As a seasoned Producer and Product Manager with a passion for crafting captivating content, my journey has been enriched by a diverse upbringing as the son of a diplomat. Growing up amidst flourishing democracies, communist nations, and religious totalitarian cultures, I gained invaluable insights into human interaction and communication dynamics.
With over two decades of experience in producing video games, animation, and transmedia, I specialize in understanding audiences and creating immersive storytelling experiences. My expertise lies in intelligently and creatively bringing the best stories to life while aligning with stakeholders’ visions and product roadmaps.
I continuously explore cutting-edge technological mediums such as holograms, comics, and animation, seeking to push the boundaries of storytelling and audience engagement.
Throughout my career, I’ve collaborated with prestigious brands like Tomb Raider, Nike, Coca-Cola, Spongebob Squarepants, Burka Avenger, and Unilever, while also working closely with esteemed clients in the Development and Public sectors, including the United Nations Development Program, USAID, the US State Department, and the World Bank.
The journey began with the Red Herring Award (Helios 2.0 Engine – 2005), marking the start of a fulfilling career dedicated to impactful storytelling. My dedication and commitment to excellence have earned me notable honors and awards, including the Nelson Mandela-Graça Machel Award for Innovation (Jinnah Hologram – 2021), the Runner Up PASHA Award (Metaverse Ad Mediation System – 2019), an International Emmy Nomination (Burka Avenger – 2015), and the prestigious Peabody Award (Burka Avenger – 2014). I even designed the first computerized ID card.
Beyond my professional pursuits, I find joy in being a proud pet owner and a devoted father of one. Embracing metaversal parenting and digital parenting in the Web 3.0 world, I navigate the digital landscape responsibly, ensuring meaningful connections and experiences for my family.
