As a producer for Skycar Creative, I develop, budget, schedule, crew, and track shows for clients such as Adobe and Google.
Life Noggin Studios
For the science web show Life Noggin, I research and write editorial scripts about a variety of science and technology subjects including space, biology, psychology, geology, and medicine.
Discovery Digital Networks (now Seeker Media)
I developed, produced, and managed 300 episodes of DNews (now called Seeker), a science and technology web series that brings important, engaging, and mind-bending stories to a millennial audience of 2.4 million YouTube subscribers. In addition to directing the creative vision of the show, I maintained the rigorous production calendar for 10 episodes a week and also directly supervised a team of associate producers and interns. In my first five months at the company, I brought the show to a record 5 million views-per-week and increased views-per-episode 150 percent.
I produced a wide variety of web and display media for the Smithsonian Institution and its partners, including online editorial series, educational explainers, promotional branding videos, and live event recordings. In addition to developing concepts and writing scripts, I oversaw studio and field production, lead teams of editors and animators, and managed schedules and budgets. I also edited rough and fine cuts of videos and created the sound design for animations.
Interface Media Group
As a creative producer for Interface Media Group, I wrote and produced media content for a diverse group of clients, including Amtrak, Children’s National Health System, the U.S. Department of State, and the United Nations. I supervised production and post-production, liaising between the creative teams and our clients to ensure that we exceeded expectations. I also pitched original television and web series and created proposals for new clients.
For WebsEdge, I created informational and promotional videos for nearly 40 companies and educational institutions, including Stanford, Cornell, Penn State, the Smithsonian Institution, and IBM. In addition to writing and producing, I directed shoots around the country and managed an extensive database of freelance vendors. I also developed media content at conferences, including 30-minute, news-style programs that contained conference highlights and behind-the-scenes interviews with conference speakers.
As a producer and writer for VideoTakes, Inc., I created long and short-form documentaries, educational videos, advocacy pieces, and promotional web spots for groups such as The Nature Conservancy, World Wildlife Fund, the U.S. Army Reserve, USAID, and the U.S. Botanic Garden.
As an associate producer at Sapling Pictures, I coordinated and post-produced promotional spots for the Discovery Channel shows MythBusters, Deadliest Catch, Time Warp, and Prototype This.
National Park Service
During my work with the National Park Service, I coordinated location production throughout Montana and South Dakota for Land of Dreams: Homesteading America, a film about land use and the legacy of the Homestead Act. I also worked in post-production logging and selecting takes, conducting research, and clearing rights for archival footage.
I was a production assistant at several West Coast production companies, including World of Wonder, where I worked in post-production on two television series for Logo and Sundance Channel. I also spent a year working on the evening news at KVAL-TV, where I ran studio cameras, manned the audio board, directed talent, and operated Chyron.
