ROLE: Post Production Supervisor / Sketch Director
Weekly comedy/variety series for Netflix, produced by Paul Feig (Feigco), Lionsgate TV & Pygmy Wolf Productions. I oversee post production, schedule and manage editorial staff, execute final delivery to Netflix weekly, and from time to time, I direct sketches for the show too. Here's one of those sketches below!
NORM MACDONALD HAS A SHOW (2018)
ROLE: Post Production Supervisor
10-episode comedy/talk series for Netflix with Norm Macdonald, produced by Lionsgate TV & Pygmy Wolf Productions.
THE SOUP (2005-2015)
ROLE: Producer / Sketch Director
In 2005, I started as a production assistant with E! Entertainment's The Soup with Joel McHale. At the show, I produced late night comedy weekly, both live and to tape, as well as wrote, directed and sometimes edited sketches for air. In 2014, the TRUE DETECTIVE sketch I produced/directed was nominated for a Creative Arts Emmy Award. I also oversaw post production, created show graphics, ran edit sessions and ensured proper quality control and delivery to network weekly.
