A producer ("Pretty Woman", "Under Siege" etc) and former literary manager, I help writers and directors achieve success and build real (income-producing) careers in film and TV. I’ve launched many first-timers and elevated stalled careers. Whether building a career or moving a project from idea or script to screen, my secret sauce is mentoring talented creatives and strategically transforming dreams into realities. A partial sampling of credits for those I’ve helped achieve their dreams include: War for the Planet of the Apes, Parenthood, Arrested Development, The West Wing, The Mothman Prophecies, Gilmore Girls, Two and a Half Men, Fame, Autumn in New York, among others.
