Don is an independent film/video producer. Originally based out of Jacksonville, FL, he is also present in Los Angeles, CA. As a producer, director, writer, his travels have taken him across North America, along with capturing projects overseas. Beyond scripted production, he has served as a technical director for live video and has tackled complex stage and lighting design in large venues. Anyone who knows Don will note his ability to straddle the isle between the creative and the technical, moving projects cohesively toward successful ends via organized goals and sought clarity while also having fun in the process.

Currently, Don is working through the early stages of development on a feature film project set in St. Augustine, FL while casting ideas and engaging writers on additional concepts. One such project in the writing phase is an action-adventure film honoring the brotherhood of America’s military soldiers.
