Prior to launching How Far Is Tattoo Far for MTV, I was a Showrunner at CNBC, ABC, Freeform, and OWN and more. During my years producing Reality TV, I worked closely with Gordon Ramsey, Julie Chen, Simon Cowell, Pauly Shore, and Lara Spencer , among others. I oversaw hits such as “Big Brother, “Hell’s Kitchen,” and “Oprah Behind the Scenes.” As a Producer in the pioneering days of Reality TV, I story produced early hits such as Temptation Island, The Mole and the CW’s Surreal Life, running story point and interviews in the field, and overseeing entire seasons in post-production. I started my career directing over dozens of episodes of scripted comedies for MTV and FX Network and 2 comedy indie features which both won the Top Prize at SXSW for Best Narrative Feature. An industry veteran for 20 years, I have produced for CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, MTV, CNBC, OWN, Discovery, TBS, and Freeform. I graduated from UCLA with a bachelor’s degree in Film & Television.  You can look me up on IMDB, Staffmeup, and Linkedin
