Before becoming a comedy director, Ruganzu “Riggs” Howard worked as an Executive Producer for advertising agencies big and small, including BBDO, TBWA/Chiat/Day, Barton F. Graf and Translation.
Prior to that, he was an assistant editor and post-producer at Bikini Editorial where he worked under the guidance and gentle tutelage of master editor Avi Oron. Prior, prior to that, Ruganzu was a Baltimore City Police Detective (no, really), where he served as a violent crimes investigator, hostage negotiator and police department spokesperson. Prior, prior, prior to that, he was a child and had no vocation aside from being cute.
Ruganzu’s ambitious and slightly fanatical spirit for all things funny keeps him pushing the directorial envelope. His sense of comedic timing and obsession with cinematic craft always serve the script above all else, and his years of advertising agency experience make him an excellent collaborator with creative and client alike.
