I am a television producer with over 25 years of experience in video production — 18 with the CNN Science & Technology Unit, and a decade running my own production company.
Recent highlights include serving as Executive Producer for the National Science Foundation’s Science Nation series, which reported on important, interesting, cool research funded by NSF — ten years, 332 projects learning how to shoot, edit and manage a $3.5 million budget! I’ve also produced and edited dozens of stories for the PBS NewsHour, and worked the “space beat” in conjunction with the team at Spaceflight Now.
It’s fair to say “If you cut me, I bleed producer.” I have deep research and set-up skills, extensive field production experience and a proven track record coordinating and managing crews and production schedules.
If what you need is a “one-woman band,” I can do that too. I handled the last 45 Science Nation projects solo as producer, videographer, writer and editor.
I also produce/edit social media videos for the syndicated PBS show This American Land, which has been an opportunity to stretch my motion graphics muscles with Adobe After Effects.
My kit is built around the Panasonic Lumix GH3 DSLR Camera, and I edit with Adobe Premiere Pro.
I have been honored to receive two News and Documentary Emmy Awards, most recently in 2013 as a producer for the PBS NOVA film Manhunt — Boston Bombers, which won in the Outstanding Science & Technology Programming category. I also won an Emmy in 1993 as a coordinating producer for the CNN special program In Nature’s Wake (about the historic floods that year in the Midwest) in the category Outstanding General Coverage of a Single Breaking News Story (Program).
When I’m not working, I enjoy photography, cooking and yoga.
