I believe I have the experience for success. I'm very use to wearing multiple hats to get a great production completed.
I've directed and produced some outstanding work in the past. Recently, television pilots and original web series, including the PBS documentary on public education "Go Public: A Day in the Life of an American School District" (www.gopublicproject.org) and the original comedy series, "Love and Loathing: Adventures in Divorce Land" (www.LoveandLoathingSeries.com). Recently, I served as Head of Production at Lone Wolf Media in Portland, Maine overseeing budgets and projects for NOVA, Animal Planet, Smithsonian Channel and PBS. I also produced two VR projects for NOVA.
Past projects include, EMMY nominated documentary, "Houston We Have a Problem"; the live action portions for the EA video game, "Need for Speed: Undercover"; and "Mandala", a five camera live performance with world musician David Arkenstone. Before that I was Head of Production for Lady of the Canyon, LLC which included producing the documentary "We'll Always Have Dingle" in Ireland and the one hour drama, "Finding Hope" (www.FindingHope.TV) with Chris Mulkey, Darby Stanchfield, Molly Quinn and James Morrison. Line Producer on the theatrical documentary from Magnolia Pictures/Universal, "Sunshine Superman." I also co-produced the 13 episode series, "Senior Year" for PBS. That lead to producing/directing gigs on "Black. White." for FX and "Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman" for IFC. One of my most successful award winning short narrative films, "Travelin' Trains" is on IMDB for viewing. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1203536/

I've been involved in well over 100 film, television, documentary and commercial/music video projects, 30 as an Assistant Director and/or Production Manager, including the EMMY award-winning "24," "Extreme Makeover:Home Edition" "Kalifornia," and "Daughters of the Dust." I’m a detail-oriented, exceptionally organized independent worker who can manage and collaborate with clients, colleagues and/or partners. Highly analytical and adaptable at keeping the project moving forward, no matter the odds. I act quickly and maturely under pressure with a large cross section of personalities. I can keep a team motivated, engaged and on budget. I thrive in results-oriented environments that require creative thinking and problem solving. I bring a high level of integrity to everything I do and believe in continuous learning and self-improvement
I've created numerous budgets and schedules for both large studio productions and small indies. I've shared that knowledge and taught numerous media workshops, not only in the United States, but in Ireland, the Dominican Republic, Cayman Islands and in Canada (especially Line Producing/Production Management courses). For the last 10 years, I've been mentoring and training filmmakers with an individualized, tutorial-based instruction program, OneonOneFilmTraining.com
A graduate of Emerson College in Boston with a BFA in film, I still consider my best and most challenging work to be raising my two daughters. Now that they are grown, I love to travel when ever and where ever I can.
Unique traits: I've been to every state in the United States at least once.
