Charles Adelman and I met through mutual friends in 2002 while he was still operating his film production and distribution company. I’ve worked with Charles on several film and television productions as a camera operator. We developed a great friendship early on, and have always kept in close contact over the years. In early 2019 Charles reached out to me with an job opportunity at BrandRep where he was CTO. I was hired shortly after and worked on the executive team for the past year.
