Kolby’s journey started at NYU where he honed his storytelling skills and cinematic aesthetic and was awarded the Lew Wasserman MCA Fellowship. After a brief stint in development and music video production at Universal Studios in L.A., he worked as a live broadcast director for Cablevision in New York. This pivotal role introduced him to the world of end-to-end production, shoestring budgets, and split-second decision making that would ultimately define his future success.
Since then, he has taken on multiple agency leadership roles that leverage his creative, production, and operations skills, and feeds his passion for developing strategy, projects, and people.
