As a steward of some of the world's most legendary characters and brand stories, my voice resonates across virtually every platform and format imaginable and as yet to be imagined.


Serving on multiple committees and caucuses, I lecture, consult and give workshops.  Remember the power of childhood play and call in a community yearning to return to the sandbox.

story/development

content marketing

I jettisoned a career as a  journalist to start at the bottom of the heap in entertainment. As I engaged with a growing blog following who cheered my uphill climb through the Hollywood trenches, my new  story began writing itself.
