With an interdisciplinary creative background spanning photography, graphic design, writing, and acting, Adrian brings a uniquely diverse skillset to his directing and filmmaking work. No stranger to entertainment, Adrian was raised in Ridgewood, New Jersey, by showbiz parents (one an actor, the other a camera operator) and he first fell in love with collaborative media while doing school plays and making videos in elementary school.

Adrian moved to San Francisco in 2003 to study at the San Francisco Art Institute where he attained a Bachelor of Fine Arts, and then began his creative career at Free Range Studios in Oakland. Since then, he has written, produced, directed, and edited narrative, commercial, and editorial works in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and internationally for clients large and small.

Adrian is also a director and contributing writer of two comedy series currently in development, with releases expected in 2018. After spending 14 wonderful years in San Francisco, Adrian currently resides in Los Angeles and can be found rock climbing nearly every day after work.
