Summary

I am an Emmy nominated rock star producer and charismatic host in the lifestyle and entertainment space. I have an excellent production background and outstanding experience in both TV and digital. I love great storytelling and creating entertaining, informative, inspiring, and engaging content. I have a passion for all things lifestyle: health and wellness, fitness, beauty, fashion, food, and travel, and I am well versed in working with clients and creating branded content.

My greatest talent is interviewing people, getting them to open up and tell me their stories. I have interviewed countless celebrities and influencers, crime victims and their families, and just regular people I meet while covering cool events for my web series Paragons & ICONS With Stephany BYRNE. I love the creative process and collaborating with crews and editors, and I really shine in the field.

One of my first jobs in television was covering 9/11, and the anniversary of 9/11, live, on the roof at Ground Zero, for Fox. It was there I got my producing chops and have since gone on to report and produce for a number of high profile shows and networks such as NBC, the CW, and CNN. One of my more recent jobs and greatest career achievements is the news magazine/true crime syndicated series Crime Watch Daily. Reporting in the field, giving victims and their families a voice, chasing bad guys, running the New York set as producer and director, and receiving an Emmy nomination, I have done some of my best work on this show.  My other great passion is entertainment and I have covered countless red carpets, premieres, award shows, and events in movies, music, TV, and the theater for shows such as Extra, Access Hollywood, and The Daily 10 on E!
