Every project is a new enterprise that needs to be taken from imagination to reality. They are not only creative ventures, but business entities. These productions: be they film, television, online or all of the above, need a savvy producer to see them through from the creative process, to production, to business strategy. Every single project, no matter what, is met with passion and purpose. The vibe is contagious and I love my job.”
