I have produced hundreds of hours of scripted and unscripted, short- and long-form, and multiplatform content for diverse brands:

Media: Animal Planet, Nat Geo, Discovery, Screen Junkies Plus, Logo, MTV, VH1, Spike TV, NBC, ABC, USA Networks, The CW

Consumer & Gaming: Microsoft, Mixer, CyberPowerPC, HyperX, ASUS, Intel, Ubisoft, SEGA, Samsung, Gillette, Scion, Fiat, Swatch

I rely on my creative and development background, collaboration, and attention to detail to find innovative solutions to difficult programming challenges. The feedback I get from my teams includes “high standards but fair,” “inclusive and principled,” and “always open to new ideas.”

I began my career as an office Production Assistant FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS. This led to casting jobs and a role as Peter Berg’s assistant at Film 44. At 20th Century Fox, I produced episodes of CRISTINA’S COURT, winning a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Legal and Courtroom Program. As a Producer for Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios, I delivered more than 250 scripted episodes. This work earned me two Daytime Emmy nominations. I then joined STILETTO Television as Supervising Producer and Development Executive where I developed unscripted episodes for TREEHOUSE MASTERS and CABIN FEVER as well as original series for TLC, National Geographic, and Discovery Networks.

As the Head of Production for DEFY Media’s Screen Junkies YouTube channel and SVOD service, I supported content development and oversaw a programming slate of 14 original digital series. Our HONEST TRAILERS series was nominated for a Primetime Emmy in the Outstanding Short Form Variety Series category. Most recently, I have held content strategy, creative development, and production leadership roles for Microsoft’s retail business. After creating a programming slate for the Mixer streaming platform, I accepted a role on Microsoft’s Partner Marketing team, leading strategy for branded content and content partnerships.
