I love to create.

I began my career as a production manager at a Pittsburgh based company where I saw commercials through from pitch to completion. While there I also directed and produced on a number of projects. Since going freelance I've continued to work in those capacities on local and national spots, as well assistant directing and working as an assistant camera. I’m a bit of a generalist by trade; it keeps me sharp and ready for whatever each job requires.

As an artist, my first illustration collection, Lies We Tell Our Kids, was published nationally through Animal Media Group in 2018. I've designed album art, promotional posters, logos, storyboards, and even a few tattoos.

When I'm not working I mostly hang out with my dog Margot, shoot film, and hike (ideally all at once).

Want to chat about a project? Shoot me an email, I’d love to talk or even grab a coffee. brett.etienne.wagner@gmail.com
