What I Do Now

I produce Daytime, a show of celebrity interview interstitials that airs on USA, and field produce Talk Stoop, the version that airs on NBC.

I was a lifeguard, high school teacher, writer’s assistant, copy writer, and filmmaker.

During Studio 20, I worked directly with…

The New York Daily News, The New York Times, The New York Observer

Final Project Partner

The New York Observer

Problem I helped solve…

I developed a video component for the news organization, including creating a workflow, a style guide, and original content.

Professional hops since graduating…

I was a video journalist with NY Daily News, a freelance video director/editor, an associate professor at NYU and Kingsborough Community college, a freelance video producer/editor at NYC TV, a promo producer at NYC TV, and an editor of NBC’s “Talk Stoop”.

Why Studio 20

I was looking for a non-academic program that didn’t fit pre-conceived ideas about journalism education and did reflect the weird mood of the industry, but also respected the basics of storytelling. Amazingly, I found it.
