Before moving into the entertainment business in 2004, Mr. Hirsch spent 10 years as an investment banker on Wall Street. Mr. Hirsch began his career at Morgan Stanley & Co. in New York working in their Investment Banking Division. While at Morgan Stanley, Mr. Hirsch worked on some of the largest corporate restructurings of the time, including the multi-billion dollar spin-off of Nabisco from RJR, the break-up (second) of AT&T, and Tenneco, Inc.

Mr. Hirsch subsequently left Morgan Stanley and joined Bank of America's Investment Banking Group, focusing on high yield and distressed securities. Mr. Hirsch helped numerous companies issue, tender and exchange publicly traded high yield bonds, executing some of the largest high yield bond swaps of all time including multi-billion dollar bond exchange offers for Qwest Communications and Conseco, Inc. Mr. Hirsch spent his last few years at Bank of America running their International Bond Restructuring Group, having successfully completed distressed/defaulted bond restructurings for companies in South America, Asia and Europe. Mr. Hirsch completed the first corporate bond exchange in Argentina post the economic collapse in 2001 (the largest default in the history of the capital markets), and the first ever corporate bond exchange in India following their economic collapse in 1998. In total, Mr. Hirsch successfully executed numerous bond deals with a total aggregated dollar value in excess of $30 billion dollars.

After taking a year off to catch up on a decade of missed vacations and sleep, Mr. Hirsch formed Fixed Point Films for the sole purpose of developing, financing and producing independent feature films. Since forming the company in 2004, Mr. Hirsch has successfully produced over a dozen independent feature films, with budgets ranging from $200K to $15MM. Mr. Hirsch recently produced PASSION PLAY, starring Mickey Rourke, Bill Murray and Megan Fox, and MAIN STREET, two-time Academy Award winner Horton Foote's final original screenplay starring Colin Firth, Orlando Bloom, Patricia Clarkson and Ellen Burstyn, directed by Tony-winner John Doyle.

Mr. Hirsch studied economics at the University of Chicago and the London School of Economics, and currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
