For over a decade, I’ve been lucky enough to work across many areas of the media industry. It has groomed me to excel in all aspects of visual storytelling seeing deadline-driven projects from development through final delivery of assets including pitching, writing, budgeting, field producing, directing, shooting, editing, project management, and publishing with digital asset management systems. It all started at CBS in 2009 paving the way for how the venerable news network broadcasted to a new audience online. At that time, CBSNews.com was ahead of the curve as my team developed the most optimal ways to package television content online from shows such as 60 Minutes, Sunday Morning, and 48 Hours. I was also fortunate enough to work on a live digital show with Katie Couric and produce a streaming simulcast to The Early Show. The hands-on experience and skills I gained over the years at CBS allowed me to join CNN as that network began to reinvent its digital presence. The reach of CNN ramped everything up for me as the projects I worked on received higher budgets and were seen by many more people. This also is where I started to develop more of my project management skills working in sponsored content. The series under this department operate under deadlines set by clients requiring a higher level of production quality and strict delivery schedule both online and on television. Along the way I have been awarded with numerous accolades including an Emmy nomination, Eppy awards and special recognition from the Webbys. The best part of my job is hitting publish and broadcasting a piece I poured my heart and mind into. I never want to stop creating and sharing my passion with the world.
