IGNITE THE GAME I wrote and produced a Nike Football commercial for Asia Pacific featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, Carlos Tevez and Cesc Fabregas in a match between Manchester United and Arsenal FC. We filmed on location in Manchester and London over ten of the most freezing days and nights I've ever felt. But it was an amazing experience to work with such incredible athletes. Watch Nike: Ignite The Game now.
OYL IN TOKYO I keep a blog on Tumblr that covers culture, art, sports and design in Tokyo. I also take a ton of photos of Tokyo street culture, fashion and interesting meals that I eat along the way. I've lived in Tokyo for three years, but still find that there is adventure around every corner and inspiration along every narrow alleyway. Jump to Oyl In Tokyo now.
