Former Oprah Show producer with 15+ years network TV experience who GETS IT DONE. On time. On budget. No drama. I currently run my own video production company in Chicago and (to borrow from cheesy car commercials) I don't believe in meeting expectations, I believe in blowing them out of the water. Tight deadlines? No problem? Need the impossible? I'll do everything I can to make it happen. Need someone to herd cats? I'm available. I'm an experienced WRITER (scripts, promos, releases), FIELD PRODUCER, TEAM LEADER, COPY EDITOR, BOOKER, HAND-HOLDER, BRAINSTORMER and MULTI-TASKER. I've worked with some of the biggest celebrities on the planet - and interviewed 6 year-olds.
I started out my career in NYC. After stints at Good Morning America & Dateline NBC where I covered features and news, I spent ten lucky years working for The Oprah Winfrey Show, producing shows on everything from breaking news to celebrity interviews; from Oprah's Favorite Things to an hour-long special with David Blaine when he broke a world record LIVE on the air. I'm especially proud to have done many cause-related shows that brought attention to pressing issues like animal rights, internet predators, and environmental emergencies.
Most recently, I launched Big Red Bike Media in Chicago, a production company to help companies and non-profits develop media strategy, create online content, and tell their stories in a fresh and engaging way. I'm on a mission to make cookie-cutter corporate videos extinct.
