My Creative Career

Drawn to television and current events while traveling the world from a young age, I began working in broadcast newsrooms in high school -- talk about training on your toes! Next, I fell into the fabulous world of teen & children's programming and was over the moon at how fun work could be!

After complex work on multiple continents, I'm delighted to be hand selecting creative projects with synergistic teams... ahhhh

EMMY Awards

I thrived under complete creative freedom at WCIU in Chicago!
