To Whom It May Concern,
My sincere thanks for your time and consideration today.
As you'll see on my attached resume, I've spent my career building and mentoring multi-platform teams to craft digital, documentary and interactive content for a wide variety of audiences. Over the course of producing award-winning pieces for studios, networks, nonprofits and advertisers, the most fundamental strategy I've developed, and constantly rely on, is how to turn data and research into emotional journeys and visual experiences across all platforms.
For every step along the way, my approach to creative execution always comes down to knowing how to curate and activate a message. When a brand, product or organization's initiative is made personal and searchable, viewers looking for answers around similar topics can be targeted and positively impacted.
From a leadership standpoint, my process has always been clear, concise and consistent. I create trust within my teams. That trust allows space for the tiniest of ideas to rise above the noise and become the defining detail or driving voice of a project. Once the best idea, story or character is revealed, and with all proper approvals in place, I assemble the best and brightest talent for the job, then support and mentor them to do their best work.
And finally, given the state of our world and the wellness of those around us, I feel it's prudent to share that I recently finishing filming a new 12-part television series during the "Summer of Covid" without incident. I've always considered myself an eternal optimist with a knack for problem-solving, but even the most executive of executive producers didn't know a global pandemic was heading our way. In order to keep production going and accomplish our series goals, I had to development and implement new Covid-19 safety protocols on the fly for all involved. Thus, I am uniquely experienced in producing safe and successful content during a pandemic and keenly aware of just how important "safety first" is for everyone on my team.
At this point in my career, what's most important to me is working at places, on projects and with people who want to create and innovate with intention. Should my experience and aspirations align with what you are searching for, I look forward to hearing back and learning more about your open positions.
All my best,
