As President of the Northwest Screenwriters Guild in Seattle from 2007-2009, I had the great pleasure of interviewing over 30 folks from the film/TV industry, including WGA writers, DGA directors, executives, agents, managers, SAG/AFTRA actors, and several EMMY and OSCAR nominees and winners.

I have also had the pleasure of moderating panels at the Austin Film Festival, PNWA Conference, and the Great American Pitchfest.

Upon moving to Los Angeles in 2009, I began working as a podcast producer/co-host for the On The Page screenwriting podcast with Pilar Alessandra. We are ranked in Top 50 of iTunes TV & Film podcasts with 3,000 to 6,000 listeners per week and in 2010 we were listed as “10 Podcasts Worth a Listen” by Moviemaker Magazine.
