Personal Quote:

If there's anything I know about directing, it's how to make actors comfortable. It's where I started and it's what I know, and it's what I love. I like when the actors are really partners and I want them to be excited and I want them to surprise me. I don't want them to be puzzle pieces. See more »

Co-wrote the song "Snapshot in LA" alongside Marion Cotillard especially for a Lady Dior advertising campaign in 2014. See more »
