Nuts and bolts

My skills are in shaping and molding ideas into high quality entertainment. I'm a strong story teller with experience on both sides of the television business; first as a producer and writer, and later as a network developer and executive producer. I have built my career on solid relationships with colleagues, production companies and agents and take pride in maintaining those relationships.

I have more than 25 years of experience in all aspects of television production, including developing, producing, writing, editing and supervising highly rated, top-tier series, specials and documentaries. I spent years writing and producing Biography episodes, and later had jobs at two news organizations, all of which helped me to understand journalistic principles and ethics.

I've worked on multi-million dollar ad sales integrations, collaborated with press teams at TCA,  represented networks at industry events, pre-negotiated deals for business affairs, handled talent management issues, and have worked with finance and production management on program and operating budgets.
