to join or become combined, or to cause things to join: [I] The two cells are fused with a jolt of electricity. [T] The heat of the fire fused many of the machine's parts together.

In my mission to inspire the world’s top independent studios, I lead FUSE gatherings.


Each meetup – private dinner, happy hour, or studio tour – is a rare opportunity to we forge deeper relationships, realize our shared goals and struggles, and influence our industry for the better.

How it works.
WHO
Each event is a curated gathering of a dozen or so leaders from top independent studios, production companies, and creative agencies.

Priority invitations are extended to my FORUM members.

FORMAT
Most events begin with happy hour or field trip to a host studio, followed by a transformational Jeffersonian dinner.

FEE
I run these events at cost. Your seat is confirmed with a deposit then we all split the final bill.
