My job as a Producer/Production Manger is to solve problems and connect the dots. Nothing is more rewarding that weaving the connecting tissues together and finding solutions.
I'm an information and story junkie. If it's NPR, Facebook, National Geographic, Science at Burning Man, Instagram, a marketing campaign, or listing to someone at a coffee shop, I want to hear and share stories. They are the tools of a problem solver.
I love to mentor. Especially consulting with young women, so they can move the ball forward.
My mother always said that I found that I was the smartest person in the room, it was time to find another room. Instead, I want to help build it and as a BIG DOOR.

What is your earliest memory? Maybe you have a few. I remember the crunch of sand in my tuna fish sandwich on the beach. My friend crying when she had to leave my house after a playdate. Snowy walks behind our house that felt like walking into Narnia. Is there one that sank in so deep that it has shaped who you are? Like watching a rocket launch, or seeing a play?
Some memories are not driven by such pleasant circumstances. Memories of hiding in fear under a bed. Or the first time I chose to act out of anger. Unpleasant as they may be, the lasting impressions helped me survive.

I have always been a storyteller. My mother is a teacher and gifted storyteller (she has the gift of gab) and my father is a graphic designer and a painter. Both of them are artists in their own ways, and they inspired me to keep learning!
As for film, my grandfather had a split 16mm film camera. He filmed my father from the day he came home from the hospital to age 17. A camera was ALWAYS at family gatherings. The desire to document and share life through a lens came directly from them.
