Coordinator, Music @ Currently neck deep in designing a new business-to-business website for Paramount Music, including graphic design, formatting content, and managing all aspects of the user experience. From July 2013 to Present (2 years 4 months) Greater Los Angeles AreaFounder @ Photography has always been a personal passion, which I've turned into a part-time business for myself. Actor head shots, portraits, events, music, fashion, glamour, nude, landscape; I've shot it all, and enjoyed every minute. Feel free to visit my website to see my work for yourself. From 2000 to Present (15 years) Sherman Oaks & Los Angeles, CALegal Asst. II, Music Business Affairs & Legal @ When the economy took a downturn, and the market for independent creatives downsized, I was fortunate enough to land a position in the Music Department at Paramount Pictures. I work with several executives on various composer, artist, producer and soundtrack album agreements for both Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Animation productions, as well as a host of other motion picture music-related issues. Recent films include: The Dictator, Rango, Footloose, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Jackass 3D, Puss in Boots, Kung Fu Panda 2...and the list goes on.
Working at Paramount is a dream; it's a challenging and enjoyable job at an amazing company rich with Hollywood history, and my team members are smart & creative, funny, interesting, and loyal. We work hard as a team to get our jobs done, and in the off-hours I am free to pursue my photography. From June 2009 to July 2013 (4 years 2 months) Greater Los Angeles AreaFounder, Producer, Director, Writer @ I re-wrote, produced, and directed two independent films in 2007. A horror feature in January, and a comedy feature in April. Both of these pictures were SAG low-budget films, executive produced by Percy Miller, aka "Master P." From January 2007 to June 2009 (2 years 6 months) Greater Los Angeles AreaProducer, Director, Writer @ From 2005-2007, I worked as a Producer, Director, and Writer for ScreenTime Films. During this time, I wrote, produced, and directed numerous short videos for blossoming actors to star in, in order to build their demo reels. I also produced multi-camera stage plays and comedy shows for home video distribution.
In the summer of 2006, I helped develop, produce, and distribute a feature film, Diary of a Tired Black Man. This film started as a short video that went viral online—reaching #33 of Google’s Top 100—and received a great deal of media attention; from Al Sharpton and Michael Baisden to Fox News and National Public Radio. In light of public demand, financing was secured to produce the feature-length film. The film was shot as a documentary/drama, and starred Jimmy Jean-Louis of NBC’s “Heroes.” The film has screened profitably in Los Angeles, Detroit, and Washington DC, and domestic and international distribution rights were secured by Magnolia Pictures.
