[ ZOSIMO MAXIMO ]
Zosimo Maximo began his career in the world of high fashion working for such notable designers as Anna Sui, Gucci, Prada and Ralph Lauren. Eventually, Maximo branched out on his own to start a menswear company called Kulee Klothing in Los Angeles which also led to design and styling work in the music video arena. Being exposed to the "golden years" of music video production, Maximo got the itch to pursue a Masters Degree in Film/Television at the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena where he was awarded the AICP Award for an Adidas spot.
Upon graduation, Maximo signed with commercial production house The Joneses where he directed several award winning campaigns for Ford Motors. Maximo also ventured into reality television and quickly added several highly rated shows to his resume as producer/director such as MTV's Room Raiders, Spike TV's Ultimate Fighter, and The Style Network's Style Her Famous.
In April 2007, Maximo co-created VIMBY.COM, a leading pop culture media website specializing in short form original content targeting the elusive 18-24 demographic. As Creative Director of VIMBY, Maximo led a team of 100 filmmakers scattered across 18 of top media markets in capturing pop culture in verticals such as music, nightlife, car culture, action sports, fashion, and art.
VIMBY has been recognized by many industry leaders as one of the best producers of high-quality on-line content that delivers access and authenticity directly to brands. VIMBY's client list includes McDonaldss, Toyota, Puma, Nike, MySpace, Interscope, Universal Music, Def Jam, Warner Bros. Records, and Sony Music.
