I approach each project with an adventurous spirit and the experience of a well-traveled soul.

 


I am a Writer/Content Producer with a bachelors degree in visual art (photography and video production) from Florida State University and twenty five years of experience in video, television, and web-interactive. My extensive background includes Studio/Live-to-Tape Production, Talk Show Research & Segments, Field Producing, Documentary Story Producing, Film, Commercial, and Live Entertainment Coordinating, Corporate, Educational, and Marketing Videos, and eLearning production. I have the research expertise and writing talent to clarify and craft messages and stories, the organization and management skills to oversee projects from concept to completion, and the resourcefulness necessary to push projects to their highest production value within budget.  I am passionate about creating solutions for business challenges, meeting new people and forming quality relationships, thinking outside the box, and breaking new ground.
