About me & my work:

I have a portfolio career producing movies, TV and special projects for TED.

I recently produced "TED Talks Education" for TED and PBS hosted by John Legend, and I have just returned from France and India where I was producing "The Hundred-Foot Journey" starring Helen Mirren, directed by Lasse Hallstrom with producing partners Steven Speilberg and Oprah Winfrey.

I have worked in every genre of television and built successful TV franchises in the US and UK. As a senior executive at the National Geographic Channel in Washington DC, I oversaw the development and production of NGT - National Geographic's in-house production company, including oversight of a $40+ million budget for the cable network. Previously I was President of Jim Henson Television in Los Angeles where I was responsible for all prime time and children's TV, including global oversight of the Muppet franchise. I also developed feature films for Sean Connery and Mike Medavoy's Phoenix Pictures.
