MAPP makes moving pictures. He makes them beautiful and he makes them funny, in that order. He loves his job, but what he really wants to do is write bios in the third person.
MAPP began his career as an art director and later creative director, developing a nontraditional approach to advertising at agencies including Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Leagas Delaney, Goodby Silverstein & Partners, and BSSP. He won numerous awards for his work with clients such as adidas, eBay, Ace Hardware, IKEA (“Lamp”), Netflix, and Priceline.
MAPP began directing with a spot for MINI called “Ahhhhhh!” and never looked back. Since then, he’s honed his filmmaking craft by tackling a wide variety of projects, all with a cinematic approach. His greatest passions are for visual storytelling, comedy dialogue, and cars-- and he cannot resist a good period piece. He lives his best life near multiple bodies of water in California with his wife and something like two or possibly five kids, it’s a blur sometimes.
