When it comes to video, whether it be web, social, how-to, 360, series, corporate, commercial, or comedy – you name it – I’ve produced it. As a senior producer of content marketing and development at Scripps Networks Interactive, I produce branded content for HGTV, Food Network, Travel Channel, DIY Network, Cooking Channel and GAC and oversee development of new digital shows across SNI.
Previously, I worked at Mashable Studios in NYC, managing branded video projects from conception to completion for brands such as DoubleTree by Hilton, Wells Fargo, Kia, Wheat Thins and more. Before that, I was at RFI Studios where I managed video projects, created budgets/timelines and led teams and talent to produce B2C and B2B video content. At Snippies, I produced videos for clients such as Google, Microsoft, Amazon, P&G, Hyundai and more. Past work includes producing segments for The Takeaway on WNYC as well as work on Food Network Challenge for High Noon Entertainment. In London, I interned for the video channel of MSN UK shooting, editing and feeding Internet videos across the site as well as training editors how to use video effectively.
Originally from Lawrence, Kansas, I crossed the border to study Convergence Journalism at the University of Missouri. I moved to NYC with just a suitcase and a determination– and now I enjoy my work as a producer. In my time off, I take every opportunity to explore New York, and I’m currently serving on the board of the NYC chapter of the Mizzou Alumni Association.
I look forward to connecting with you!
