Summary

Having worked extensively in both development and production, an environment that provides both is tremendously appealing to me. I am format agnostic and can develop for any platform.

Having been both a buyer and a seller, I bring a history of contacts, connections and relationships with agents, studios, networks, writers and directors. I know how buyers think, and what is needed to sell. Having worked in digital content, I bring an understanding of an audience that grew up consuming content on their screens, as well as a booming business for online publishing of fan fiction, short stories and books. I am also a judge and writer’s mentor for the Bahamas International Film Festival and the UCLA Showcase Competition.
