WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR:
I am genre agnostic and drawn to COMPELLING CHARACTER DRIVEN STORIES. DRAMA, COMEDY, THRILLER, DOCUMENTARY. SERIES TELEVISION, FEATURES, PODCAST and DIGITAL content. I have a long history of bringing TRUE STORIES to light and have spent years mining meaningful IP but am more than open to considering FICTION that resonates on a large scale and COMPELLING ELEVATED UNSCRIPTED content.
