Director and Creator of award-winning content for broadcast, web, social, print, and events worldwide. A whimsical brand of visual storytelling and affection for discovering the unexpected. Sometimes finding it in a moment of humor or joy, and other times a sprinkle of nostalgia. Collaborating with innovative brands like Facebook, Instagram, Google, Hulu, IBM, HBO, Vans, and Virgin America, Reza’s eclectic commercial portfolio is attributed to a cross-disciplinary background as both a creative director and live-action director. From puppetry to hand-crafting to in-camera effects, embracing the tactile nature of the creative process in today’s increasingly digital world. Outside the studio, he imparts these values as a professor at OTIS College of Art+Design, and through his non-commercial art, which has displayed at galleries across the U.S. He is also an accomplished filmmaker in the world of scripted content, serving as a creator, writer, and producer on animated titles for Disney and Nickelodeon.
