Welcome to Park On the Lot

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.

The old saying, “In Hollywood, it’s all about who you know,” is only partly true. It’s really who knows about you…

…and likes you and wants to work with you or help you. In order to accomplish this, you need contacts, confidence, a great story and an insider’s game plan.

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: Getting a job is a full-time job in itself. If you want to see quick results, put the same kind of energy into your search as you would if you were getting paid to do it.
