My origin story starts in advertising as an copywriter where I worked at national ad agencies on brands like AT&T, General Motors and Reebok to name a few. I spent time in New York, Chicago, even Dallas. I then took a chance – a leap of faith – by jumping into an emerging digital content pool when I wrote and produced the web series, “The Wendy Channel.”
I started as a writer. Now I’m also an editor, a director, a content producer. I evolved and expanded my storytelling capabilities and I earned opportunities to collaborate with indie producers, meet with talent agents where I pitched a transmedia concept that was light years ahead and they smiled politely and the consolidation prize was they validated my parking.
I burned the midnight oil as a night assistant editor and eventually became an editor on an iconic, Emmy winning reality series. I led a small team to capture content from a mall tour for a video game company. I shot a pilot out in the desert and watched the premiere at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood. I flew my drone into a tree, which saved me from getting a ticket from the park range since who would have given me an expensive ticket. These are just some of my stories in my adventures in storytelling.
