CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT

Providing creative leadership on digital projects has been a large part of my career. I've worked for leading entertainment studios, broadcasters, and global brands - facilitating the translation of their existing story worlds and linear scripts into compelling digital initiatives.

World-building franchises for both traditional and immersive media, I also work to create exciting new properties. From pitching animated series concepts to creating and executing sci-fi series like Halcyon, I’ve developed several new IP for clients, and as an independent.

Halcyon

Halcyon, a first-of-its-kind short form, hybrid broadcast/digital/VR series. A development deal in partnership with SyFy International brought it to 80 territories globally, in multiple languages.

SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS

I've always combined technology with storytelling, and have accrued international speaking experience based on my work in virtual reality and emerging content platforms. I’ve presented to executive audiences at conferences, summits, and as a guest at progressive companies.

I’ve also served as a lecturer/instructor in the classroom, mentoring students in their endeavours and leading interactive workshops.
