BEHIND THE LENS
I went to Columbia College in Chicago, and got my BA in Film/Advertising. Right out of college I got a full-time position at a high-end film and special FX house called The Filmworkers Club. I would work there for the next 10 years, starting in the specialized area of Telecine, then graphics, then on-line FX editing, and finally off-line creative editing on Avid, Final Cut Pro, and Adobe Premiere.
In 2005 I moved to Phoenix Arizona to thaw out. I started work at Great Scott Productions as full-time editor, but I quickly moved into the role of writer/director, and love it. For the next 10 years I would work there as copywriter/director/editor and videographer working on broadcast spots and documentary.
In October of 2016 I went freelance, and opened Pugi Films. Please explore this website. I wrote and directed everything on here, unless otherwise noted.
Some clients I have worked with include: AT&T, Heinz, Pepsi, Fort McDowell Casino, George Brazil, Banner Medical Center, Chas Roberts, SARRC, Child Help, The Flinn Foundation, Native New Yorker, Pizza Hut, Arizona Burn Center, Arizona State Fair, Pet Smart, T-Gen, Saint Joseph's Hospital, Tucson Medical Center, Electric Applications Inc, Greenpeace, Girl Scouts Of America, Make A Wish Foundation, Isagenix International.
