Self initiate all streams from a brick and mortar retailer in one off women's fashion to hosting a variety of lifestyle talk shows. Produced the first ever video baseball yearbook for the New York Yankees. Published a webzine in the early stages of the Internet on Negro League Baseball, based off my travels accross the country seeking the video testimonials of men who played baseball during the decades from post WW1 through to the integration of the game in 1947. My proprietary interviewee's shot in the early 1990's ( in the process of being digitized) included players, historians and outspoken writers who lead the early movement for integration. Past year has been spent in pitching a potential doc or episodic series that has been enhanced by an additional 20 plus interviews shot with independent crews primarily in Los Angeles, Kansas City, Pittsburgh and New York. I have recently completed a 20 minute trailer that arcs from the " Great Migration" 1915 through to 1947. A central location has been selected, primary characters are in development and meetings are currently being held and scheduled both in New York and Los Angeles.
