I have over 10 years of experience working in the television and film industry with studios and networks like Warner Brothers, PBS, the Discovery Channel, MTV, ABC, and Halogen TV. While I was a producer with Halogen TV I traveled the world producing and shooting TV series in Africa, Asia, South America, and of course here at in the US. Three series I've produced have been nominated for Mid-South Emmy Awards which demonstrates my knowledge of story and character.
I have spent the last five years producing reality TV shows with topics ranging from sex trafficking, child soldiers, change in Africa, to people their dreams and purpose in life. Five years ago I helped launch a national television network called Halogen. Our tag line was “be the change”. We cared about making television that was socially conscious and that empowered people to get off the couch and get involved.
During my time at Halogen TV, I produced six series (65 episodes) from concept to completion, and I was in the field with each one of these series. These shows took me all over the world. In Tainted Love, I traveled to India, Thailand, and Cambodia where I shot and produced four seasons. I also traveled from Puerto Rico to Tobago shooting and producing an action packed surf show for Surf Life. I've covered Africa from top to bottom and trekked across the US. I have never been over budget on any show, and I have always delivered the final product on time.

This is a sample of the photographs that I have taken all over the world, 38 countries and counting.
A photograph is worth a thousand words. It can tell you about someone's entire life in one instant.
The shows and projects that bring me the most joy are the ones where I travel around the world telling the stories of survivors, volunteers, and unknown heroes. Those who have lived through some of the most tragic and trying circumstances, and yet continue to have hope.

I am a producer who has been focusing on making television that inspires people to "be the change". For the last 5 years I produced socially-conscious television for Halogen TV (now called Pivot TV), and was one of the original team members that launched the Network in 2008. Since the network’s inception, I have produced 65 shows, throughout 6 different series bringing attention to various national and international human rights issues including the civil war in Uganda, domestic and international sex trafficking, and modern day slavery.
I have been involved in every aspect of production: from initial creative and budget through mastering. Working within budget constraints I have had to be hands on at all levels including shooting and editing. I am also no stranger to coming on board of a project during production and taking the show through post production.
One of my defining traits is that I am a world traveler who enjoys working overseas and adding to my growing list of countries visited (currently at 38). Thanks to my vast traveling experience, I have managed the production team abroad for every single international shoot for Halogen. I have been on location as a producer and shooter in over 15 countries like Thailand, Cambodia and India, and even trekked most of Africa traveling from Mozambique to Morocco for a period of two months to produce Noble Exchange, Halogen’s first original and Emmy nominated series.
I have worked my way up in the television and film industries over the past ten years. I have worked with studios and networks that include: Warner Brothers, PBS, the Discovery Channel, MTV, ABC, and the Speed Channel, on projects as diverse as Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, One Tree Hill, and the MTV Music Awards.
