Summary

I am a collaborative leader with artistic vision. As a producer at all levels of plays on and off Broadway, I have coordinated effectively between investors, co-producers, management, marketing, and creative teams, to cultivate the aesthetic and financial integrity of critically acclaimed productions. A well-networked relationship builder, I have contracted Academy and Tony Award-winning talent and leveraged strong business acumen to attract funding while allocating resources with discipline. My operational management and design aesthetic grew from my parallel career track as a graphics and presentation consultant for top-tier investment firms. Working alongside Wall Street bankers sharpened my corporate communication and project management toolkits. Above all, I value inclusion and diversity. My goal is to become an integral part of an arts organization that will benefit from creative, technical, and leadership skills to produce compelling content that informs, delights, and sells.
