Hello and welcome to my entertainment career consulting practice for writers, producers and creative executives who are committed to taking their career to the next level.

Working with me, you have the advantage of working with someone who’s been on the other side of the desk; listened to thousands of pitches, bought hundreds of projects and hired scores of professionals from P.A.’s to top level writers and in-demand producers.

Making mistakes along the way, I climbed up the ladder to more than one dream job. I know exactly what it takes to succeed in Hollywood and I want to save you time getting there. I’m here to give you a competitive edge.

INSIDER TIP: Every power player in this town got to where she or he is because somebody helped in the beginning. Consequently, most people are willing, if you do a decent “ask,” to sit down with you. Of course there are some jerks who would rather eat dirt than lend a hand, but they are few and far between.
