"Some people assume that when you direct a TV show like House or Banshee, you're just sitting behind a camera telling a story – far removed from concerns like productivity, innovation, or emerging technology. In fact, you're steering a multi-million dollar business, navigating a media landscape that's changing by the hour and trying to stay a step ahead of audiences and competitors alike.

When I've been able to get involved in digital technology and tech startups like Twitter and Pinterest, that's not some distraction or side project. Working with great actors and writers is no different than working with CEOs and innovators. We're all trying to find the best ideas, build on them and share our vision and passion with as many people as possible."
