FILM DIRECTOR

As a graduate of the Cinema and Photography department at Southern Illinois University, Joe came to fig media Inc. ten years ago to serve the company as a video editor. From the start, he both shot and edited weddings, ice cream socials, corporate documentaries, and produced short narrative films which propelled him to his next stage as a commercial and film director and producer.

More recently, in the past two years, Joe has written, produced, and directed 10 commercials, and three films with fig media. His current, on-going project is entitled “Bear Down,” which is a closer look at Chicago Bears Superfans.

When he is not producing work with fig, Joe “fills his creative well” by attending popular North American Film Festivals such as Sundance, Telluride, SXSW, and Toronto. He enjoys juicing (veggies,) personal training, and practicing improvisational training in the country’s mecca of improv, Chicago.
