Diversely skilled with more than 18 years in the media industry and creative fields, I am a team-playing, deadline-focused, project-coordinating, storytelling Swiss Army knife who enjoys working with fun, new people and crafting successful, lasting partnerships. From studio shows... to live events in remote trucks... to corporate sit-down interviews... to a wide variety of field production, I have the experience sharp companies are looking for.
In my personal time, I am a world traveler, outdoorsman, angler and musician.
I am excited to relocate for my next challenge.
From beginning to end, I solve problems and get things done!
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you soon!
