My mission is to help people with great ideas learn how to pitch effectively so they can sell their projects.
Previously, I was the Director of Creative Affairs for MGM where I heard over 3000 pitches. Since 2005, I have helped many writers, directors and producers sell projects to studios and networks.
As a consultant, I work with individuals to help them craft a clear career vision, a plan of action and build a network of support. I also lead workshops for organizations and moderate events like the American Film Market’s Pitch Conference.
