~ High-Performance Entrepreneurship ~
Hey listeners, welcome to the podcast today and I am thoroughly excited to introduce today's guest. He was actually referred to the show by Steve Sims, who came on the podcast last month on Ep.491 ~ The Go-To Man for the World’s Elite, and we had an incredible time with Steve, that he said, “Chris, I want to introduce you to a friend, Jeffrey. I think he’d be great to come on your show.” So here we are today, with the legendary creative producer and once-upon-a-time fashion designer Jeffrey Madoff.
Jeffrey began his career as mentioned, as a fashion designer, and was chosen as one of the Top 10 Designers in the U.S. He then began growing his talent into video and film production. His company Madoff Productions is a one-stop shop for high quality creative services. As of today, Jeffrey has edited and directed award winning commercials, documentaries, and web content for clients such as Ralph Lauren, Victoria’s Secret, Tiffany & Co, Radio City, The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and Harvard University.
He has also worked with multi-billion dollar companies such as Gucci, Tommy Hilfiger, Revlon, Godiva, Juicy Couture, and many celebrities from around the world. Jeffrey is the author of ‘Creative Careers - Making a Living w/ Your Ideas’ and has been a featured speaker at Princeton, Wharton School of Finance, NYU, SXSW Brazil, Parsons School of Design, Google and the list goes on and on.
