I come to the world of transmedia and immersive experiences as an entrepreneur with a strong background in technology and the arts. I indulged my passion for innovative storytelling while earning my B.A. at the USC School of Cinema-Television. I also studied creative writing at NYU and attended Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic. After rebooting myself as a self-taught developer, I served as CTO of Zoomedia, an internet communications company for the world’s largest life sciences companies. At Zoomedia, I oversaw the company’s strategic consulting, engineering, IT, project management, and R&D. I also directed product development efforts and was responsible for the deployment of new technologies. Next, I founded Black Letter Discovery, a professional services company where I operated as CFO/COO. Under my watch, the company consistently increased profitability and expanded from a single office to a national operation. I developed and managed the policies and procedures required to operate the firm’s day-to-day business while leading the implementation of longer-term goals. My diverse responsibilities extended to finance, operations, IT, and HR. I led the company through an acquisition by a private equity company five years after inception, and a subsequent sale to another private concern.
I have now returned to creative endeavors and entered the world of immersive storytelling. I am excited to leverage my multi-disciplinary background to produce unique, mind-expanding experiences.
