My work as a producer includes two independent feature films and numerous short-form projects for individual artists, as well as corporate and commercial work for Fortune 500 companies, such as Clairol, Deloitte, Novartis, and Pfizer, among others. I have developed and collaborated on budgets ranging from $30K to $2Mil; created production schedules, project proposals, business plans, prospectuses, built teams, handled hiring crews, casting, and running the day-to-day. I hold experience with various states’ Tax Incentive programs, crew unions, SAG, and international productions.
Over the course of my career, I've established relationships with many dedicated and highly qualified crew members, equipment rental houses, and qualified facilities. When you bring me on-board to produce your project, you get a proven record of professionalism and integrity, as well as a trusted roster of talented people in the production world. I consider the unique aspects of each job, and provide the necessary constructs. As a freelance producer, I enjoy the flexibility of being able to hand-pick the team best suited to your project’s exclusive needs, and have the ability to devote my time accordingly.
My technical knowledge of production and post-production, includes the latest industry innovations in cameras, workflows, lenses, lighting, rigging, editing, color grading, and VFX technology. My background as editor, provides a built-in edge when it comes to planning and executing ventures. It enables me to bring projects to completion efficiently with seamless transition into post, and through final delivery and distribution.
