CLUB OFFICERS

The Television Motion Picture Car Club is a private organization where those who work in or are associated with the television, motion picture, music, radio, sports and motorsports industries can get together, connect with old friends, make new ones and share their passion for the automobile. Founded in 2009 by entertainment industry insiders, the TMPCC is one of the most unique and publicized car clubs on the planet. We have been featured on numerous radio shows, television programs, in newspapers, magazines and social media worldwide. The continued success of the club can be attributed to the dedicated and hard working individuals listed below.

He started his television career in 1979 at a Post Production house in Chicago. A few years later he was recruited to work at NBC and then received a job offer from CBS Television City in Hollywood, California, where he edited shows, specials and promos for more than two decades. He became a Supervisor in 2007 and is responsible for overseeing a talented team of editors who format the shows for the CBS and CW (CBS/Warner Brothers) Television Networks.
