Special Skills & Experience:
I am an experienced Producer, Production Manager, Production Coordinator and Operations Manager with 15+ years dedicated to the film, television and live entertainment industry. I am organized, efficient and thrive under pressure. The production industry can sometimes be an ever-changing business and being flexible to this is one of my strengths.
In the film arena, I have provided production services for Warner Bros, Sony Lifetime, HBO and National Lampoon including coordinating production office space, locations, and post-production facilities. I participated in the 48 Hour Film Project as Producer of the winning film – Jack’s Last Fandango. We won Best Overall Film, Best Directing, Best Acting, and Best Cinematography.
My previous television experience has included producing and production managing shows for CMT, BET, NBC, TV One, PBS, NFL Network, The Golf Channel and FUSE TV. A majority of these clients were based in other parts of the country and they needed a qualified, local Production Coordinator to set up crew and vendor accounts in their shoot location.
Several years of my television career were spent producing a travel show for The Golf Channel, as well as other golf related shows. I oversaw the production of The Sean Payton Show, a sports magazine style show produced in conjunction with the New Orleans Saints. I have also worked with the Allstate Sugar Bowl and the Zurich Classic. The Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation hired me to produce their 2013 Super Bowl bid video. New Orleans won the bid.
My commercial work has included providing production services for clients such as Adidas, Sobieski Vodka, Audi, Rooms to Go and the New Orleans Hornets. The Hornets kicked off an advertising campaign aimed at increasing ticket sales. I production managed the shooting of the television spots which included booking celebrities, arranging travel, securing locations and equipment and working closely with the ad agency to ensure their vision came to life.
The live entertainment field has provided me opportunities to book and manage crew for the Essence Music Festival and the VooDoo Music Experience. This included securing production equipment and a crew of 30+ for a live music event to air on national television.
For several years I managed the day to day operations of a full-service production company including managing a staff of 40+ people. This included hiring and negotiating contracts with talent and vendors, bidding on projects, budgeting, invoicing, crewing and securing equipment and locations.
Most recently, I managed a 5000 square foot production facility. I implemented standard operating procedures to ensure that the facility ran efficiently. I created marketing materials and pitched the location to production company executives. I provided crew and equipment when needed and ensured their experience was pleasant and ran as smoothly as possible.
Lastly, I am an avid supporter of growing the production industry. I was a board member of the Louisiana Film and Entertainment Association which is an organization that lobbies to keep the tax credits in place and the production industry successful.
