What I Do

 
 

I manage projects for a variety of cross-functional teams. Over years of working closely with clients, production, creatives, account services and media on a wide spectrum of projects I have developed a versatile skill set. I anticipate team member's needs, see potential challenges and help all to mitigate risk, instilling the security that "things will get taken care of" and the comfort that a level of creative exploration can be achieved regardless of budget restrictions.

As a freelancer I adapt quickly to different organizational and operational models, and I’m not shaken by the unexpected changes that come through the creative process.

Integrated Producer

EXECUTIVE PRODUCER

 
 

As a producer I bring a blend of experience working as a line producer and agency producer along with a wide variety of cross–disciplinary project management experience: video, branded content, commercials, print, social, event, testimonial, multi-camera, broadcast, DRTV, and non-traditional projects.

Decades of diverse production experience allows me to provide exceptional execution by having a deep understanding of project management and workflow: research, pitch, estimate, contracts, logistics, tight deadlines, talent sourcing, cost controls and soothing outside cost consultants, managing inter-disciplinary content, and nurturing clients. Whether its producing projects across multiple disciplines, large complex productions or a traveling two person team, live action, post-production, visual effects, motion design, or music, I deliver a smooth flowing creative, logistic and financial process.

I have managed teams as Executive Producer and Head of Production at agencies and for production companies. I‘ve balanced the needs of multiple client, creative, and production teams - working with as many as 8 producers to bring simultaneous projects to successful result. I know how to listen, understand account team needs, and help to effectively manage client expectations.

Experienced at helping teams to analyze challenges, set goals, and maintain the application of strategic thinking through the creative production process. I'm not stressed by the chaos that sometimes accompanies creativity, I've learned to anticipate and effectively mitigate it. My goal is a smooth, enjoyable process that allows everyone to do their best work and attain highest quality output.
