The corporate meetings leadership team.
Executive Producer, Creative Director
Jay has been with Fire & Rain for over 30 years. As executive producer and creative director, Jay has successfully produced hundreds of meetings and events around the world for a diverse clientele including Microsoft, YUM! Brands (A&W, Arby’s, KFC), Atlas World Group, Mead Johnson Nutrition, Corporate Express and Abbott PPD. Industry awards include several Telly awards, an Omni and an Emmy. He is also a genuine Eagle Scout. Jay can often be found carrying a ridiculously heavy backpack, leading a bunch of middle and high schoolers up and down mountains for days at a time. (We think there’s something wrong with him, but we’re just not sure what it is yet.)
Staging / Lighting Director
David is a jack-of-all-trades and wears many hats within Fire & Rain. In his 30+-year career, he has developed award-winning visual media productions, created dynamic room environments and has lensed productions in all 50 states and several foreign countries. David’s passion is lighting, and it shows in the body of work he has created over the years. David also enjoys photography, film-making, biking and anything outdoors, but most importantly, being a father.
Mark leads our post-production dept, where all of the pieces come together. Whether working closely with a producer, creative director or on his own, his 18-year background in video editing, 2D/3D animation, audio production and web content creation allow him to take projects to the next level as they pass through his department. Mark is a life-long musician and leans heavily on his sense of pace and timing to bring emotion and vision to projects. He also writes, records and produces music in his home studio and builds electric guitars as a hobby, which has generated interest in the US and UK.
Senior Producer, Director
Dan has spent nearly his entire 25-year career in corporate communications, producing and directing video pieces for clients that include many Fortune 500 companies. He has also acquired a uniquely broad understanding of all the technical and creative elements that are involved in producing a live corporate event and possesses an exceptional ability to effectively manage every detail.
