Tell us about yourself and your family. 

I have been directing live TV for over 30 years.  I have 2 sons, 31 and 29.  Together they own a very successful restaurant in Dobbs Ferry, NY.  My wife is a former Olympic figure skater.  She is now producing live events.


Where do you work? _13a5941

My free lance directing work takes me to ABC and  NBC News.  I also direct talk shows, Food Network shows and corporate broadcasts and streaming events.  My main focus now is on WORKPOINT…a co-working space that includes a TV/Media production studio.


What sets your company apart from the rest? 

Every co-working space has a different flavor.  WORKPOINT in Stamford is directly on the harbor, with sweeping views of the Long Island Sound.  We are designed specifically for tech and start-ups…and of course, media because of our studio facilities.


What led you to getting a Samsung phone?

We hosted a Samsung VR demo day at WORKPOINT.  I was offered the use of an Edge to see how I liked it compared to my iPhone.


Which one do you have?       

Galaxy S7 Edge
