Key Accomplishments

I am an entrepreneurial creative producer who is passionate about media, entertainment, technology, and digital platforms and how they can be utilized to inform and inspire massive audiences to lead positive, meaningful lives. My skill set spans strategic, technical, and creative disciplines enabling me to distill complex concepts into simple and effective communications and strategies.

As Co-Founder of Trend Media and producer of more than a dozen video productions, I have elevated the company's profile to the highest levels of the film and television industry and have sold several projects to major and independent studios (Sony, CBS, Style Network) and have creative representation at the prestigious Creative Artists Agency (CAA). As a storytelling agency, we have provided exceptional creative development and production services to high-profile clients such as President Bill Clinton, Kennedy Wilson, Bain Capital, Total Beauty Media, and others.

As Chief Revenue Officer of Air Hollywood with a focus on business development and brand strategy, I have been a driving force for the company's immense revenue growth and brand recognition since 2002. In partnership with the CEO, I have played an integral role in the development and successful launch of new products and services, have boosted revenue by more than $40M, and have positioned the company as the premiere brand in its space.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I am looking for co-founders with complimentary skill sets and alignment on organizational mission and culture.
