“I believe in maniacs. I believe in type As. I believe that you’ve got to love your work so much that it is all you want to do. I believe you must betray your mistress for your work, you betray your wife for your work, I believe that she must betray you for her work. I believe that work is the one thing in the world that never betrays you, that lasts. If I were going to be a politician, if I were going to be a scientist, I would do it every day, I wouldn’t wait for Monday. I don’t believe in weekends. If you’re headed for a life that’s only involved with making money and that you hope for satisfaction somewhere else, you’re headed for a lot of trouble. And whatever replaces vodka when you’re 45 is what you’re going to be doing.” Richard Avedon, 1988.

[rs_special_text font="google_web_font_The Girl Next Door" tag="div"]"Like nearly every storyteller since the beginning of time, I want to get people to think about the human condition. We live in a period of history where media surrounds us and ideas get lost in five hundred channels of television. Print advertising in magazines and posters on the subway are drowned out by the latest Apple-manufactured, internet-connected device proliferating our ears, our eyes, our minds.  On a daily basis, interests and opinions are swayed by false information wrapped in beautiful new media packaging, where the semiotics of language and imagery become even more important than ever before.  I would like to use my creative talents to bring my ideas and stories to the masses through the use of media, traditional and new, and the stage, traditional and experimental, and explore methods of breaking through the clutter that surrounds us to touch hearts and minds." -- Kevin Michael Reed [/rs_special_text]

I tell stories of companies, primarily apparel and beauty brands, in my commercial film and still photography work that is based on solid research into my client’s target market and a firm understanding of what sells products.

Squire Lane Films, Inc.

My film work focuses on people bringing interesting, timely and socially relevant stories to the big screen and television. Some of these stories are projects that I have developed and written, while others are stories that I find fascinating and believe deserve a chance on the big screen.

Squire Lane Films, Inc is that production arm.




After taking 10+ years away from theatre that theatre bug bit me again and I returned to lighting design for the stage in 2014.

Here are some lighting design projects that I’ve worked on recently.
