Los Angeles Area

I have over fifteen years of experience working in the entertainment industry spanning script development, TV & Film Production, talent management and social media & public relations. After graduating Summa Cum Laude from Syracuse University's prestigious S.I. NewHouse School of Public Communications (2003), my career began in script development in NYC at Tribeca Films (owned by Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal) and then in talent management at Innovative@Ford (a joint venture between Innovative Artists and Ford Models). In 2004, I made the move to Los Angeles working for Mark Burnett Productions having just wrapped Donald Trump's "The Apprentice" and working on Sylvester Stallone and Sugar Ray Leonard's "The Contender." In Los Angeles, my career spanned several more years of production including working in the directing department on the hit TV shows "Grey's Anatomy," "Desperate Housewives," and "House" and on films including "War of the Worlds" and "Thank You For Smoking," to name a few. I later made the move from set production back to talent management and development at companies including Magnolia Entertainment and Robyn Nash Productions. Seeing the shift in the industry toward digital, I accepted a position as the Senior Account Manager in social media across brands and talent at Jones Social PR working on clients including Pacific World Cosmetics, "The Valley Girl Show" on FOX starring tech guru Jesse Draper and Disney's "Dog With A Blog," among others. I later led the social media & PR department at Rebel Industries working across all E + J Gallo Wines and helping to launch a music podcast, "Rebel Radio." I also worked as a senior executive in business and tech PR for NRPR Group across accounts including Heal, Kukun, VC Network, Oncogambit, Glasshouse, and more. In 2010, I started my own media company, Press Pass LA, covering breaking industry news in the areas of TV, Film, Music, Fashion and more. focuses on events coverage, ce
