Troy Campione, Ph.D.

Founder and Creative Director

Troy left the start-up world to pursue his lifelong passion for creative storytelling, cinematography and music. Prior to founding Cineteller® Productions he excelled as a Business Development Executive for several successful high technology companies on the East and West Coasts. He knows technology and how to pitch it. He crafted and successfully executed more than $350 million in joint development agreements over the course of a 15+ year business career. At Exxon he led billion dollar businesses in the Chemicals sector and was responsible for the safe operations of some of the world’s largest manufacturing facilities. Since his earliest days, Troy dabbled in the creative arts as an aspiring filmmaker (multi-contest winner), actor/screenwriter (Popeyes Fried Chicken commercials, original slogan), and musician (lead guitarist for New Orleans new wave and rockbands and now performing at Calvary Church - Los Gatos). If your company needs a creative perspective conveyed through cinematic media Troy is in a unique position to deliver.
