I was a curator in 19th century French Neo-Classicism at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.
As Executive Creative Director of a highly visible NY agency in the 1990's, I was asked by a client to direct a commercial because he believed I understood his brand better than anyone else. The commercial was a success and I later went on to open a production company and an advertising agency, Snyder & Partners in NYC. I directed commercials, films and videos for many of the clients I had. I am currently directing videos for my clients and clients from other agencies here in Arizona.
I'm an Executive Creative Director/Creative Director in advertising, with 30 years of experience working on national and global accounts. To direct and administer to extremely talented people, you have to be as good, if not better, than they are. I gain respect and understanding from students, collaborators and co-workers by knowing how to do their job. I make people feel comfortable with my input.
