Preferred Job Title Executive ProducerHead of Original ProgrammingShowrunnerVice President
I am a seasoned Showrunner/EP with full command of the entire production process from development through delivery.
I have Executive Produced 150+ episodes of broadcast television that garnered a total of 7 Emmy nominations and 6000+ videos across digital, social, live and web platforms.
I’ve developed over 40 original series that have sold to 20+ clients including: A&E, VH1, History, Discovery, Travel, HGTV, TLC, PBS, Adult Swim, ABC Family, H2, Animal Planet, BBC, Food, NESN, Fremantle
I have the energy, grit and ego of someone who came up through unscripted TV development. Formats are my favorite thing to develop and innovate on, and my experience working in almost every genre always comes in handy when it’s time to think outside-the-box.
I’ve led creative teams in TV, video, and podcasting to produce comedy, documentary, instructional, competition, food, international news, science, sports, followdoc, encyclopedia, news, music, renovation, makeover, travel, history, dating, pet, cooking, profile, magazine, therapy, clip, engineering, nature, animation and children’s programming
I pride myself on building teams that are excited to work hard because I make sure they feel valued, respected, and supported in the pursuit of their goals. Inclusion and empowerment are personal guiding principles that I bring to every task I undertake.
