Throughout my television career, I have maintained the highest standards and been fortunate to work in a diverse range of programming, but it’s the world of food production that excites me the most and producing and overseeing culinary shoots in the field and in-studio, I find the most fulfilling.  Additionally, during my Vice President tenure, I served as a liaison for media coverage with numerous “behind the scenes” of production segments assisting in new promotional strategies that increased the company’s brand and profile.  Further qualifications I offer include the following: *Overseeing all facets of production in its various stages, formulating weekly production scheduling of all postproduction, and hiring free-lancers when necessary to ensure deadlines are met on-time and on-budget. *Demonstrated capacity to multi-task in a fast-paced daily environment with production team and key departments such as food prop master for recipe breakdown, stylists, rehearsals and discovering new culinary talent grooming them for air-ready presentation. *Strong collaborations with legal, marketing and sales departments on deliverables and creative direction of content to explore sponsorship and marketing opportunities with key brands. *Liaison with celebrities and high-profile chefs such as Emeril, Wolfgang Puck, and Jacques Pepin on location and in studio to execute the highest quality product. *Led pitch meetings with production team and conceptualizing content on all platforms. I have been passionate about the culinary world as a cook, a long-time Bon Appetit subscriber, Epicurious reader in my in-box and based upon my outstanding work ethnic and ability to work under pressure in a team-oriented environment, I am confident to make a big contribution in this position.  I welcome and would appreciate the opportunity of just a few minutes of your time via telephone, to discuss my qualifications in further detail.
