About me & my work:

I am a film and television producer. I speak publicly about storytelling and filmmaking.

I am probably best known for producing the film The Silence of the Lambs. Formerly Jonathan Demme's producing partner, my other films include Beloved, Ulee's Gold, That Thing You Do!, The Truth About Charlie, Married to the Mob, Miami Blues and Philadelphia. I produced Charlie Kaufman and Spike Jonze's Adaptation and Richard Linklater's Fast Food Nation in 2006. More recent projects include Enlightened, the acclaimed HBO comedy series staring Laura Dern and Owen Wilson; Away We Go, directed by Sam Mendes; and Our Family Wedding, starring Forest Whitaker and America Ferrera. My films have been nominated for over 20 Academy Awards and have won eight Oscars.

Originally an actor, I was one of VH1's first VJ's in New York City. I made several cameos in the films I have produced, most notably as a head in a jar in Silence of the Lambs.
