I am a media entrepreneur who has managed the business and creative sides of digital content groups within startups and networks. My background blends strategy, operations, business development, and creating cross-platform content (digital, social, podcast, and television).
As a leader on A+E Networks digital team reporting directly to the EVP of Multiplatform Programming, I develop new content and business opportunities for our premium cable networks, SVOD products, brand sponsors, licensing partners, and OTT platforms.
Prior to joining A+E, I founded the video and podcast company, Quoted Studios. Along with producing the award-winning Blank on Blank series with PBS, the studio created work for clients including Microsoft, Spotify, Razorfish, Esquire, and Jazz at Lincoln Center. Before taking the startup leap, I spent a decade at the top of national media, as a lead producer for Diane Sawyer, George Stephanopoulos (ABC News/Good Morning America), and Rachel Maddow (MSNBC).
I am an award-winning storyteller who has created content across platforms (print, web, TV, podcast, public radio, digital, social).
I have spoken at major gatherings, festivals, and roundtables on media startups, disruption in journalism, and transforming archives into engaging digital content.
