I've reached the executive ranks at global media and iconic brands, where I cultivate like-minded talent bent on bringing their own big screen finishes, often against all odds.


A steward of some of the world's most legendary characters and brand stories I've also brought to life some popular and memorable original content of my own.


Please enjoy a sampling

of my work here.







I've developed hundreds of film student shorts, all on shoestring budgets. In this class send-up, "Julie" actually has a date! With a cop! (A date in court, but still).

In an era of rapidly advancing technology, I jettisoned a successful career as a print journalist to start at the bottom of the heap in dramatic storytelling. As I engaged with a growing blog following who cheered my steep uphill climb through the trenches, my new success story seemed to be writing itself.


​Today, my voice resonates across virtually every platform and format imaginable and as yet to be imagined.
