Social Media:

I'm a communications expert with a proven track record in spearheading successful publicity campaigns for a wide range of successful scripted and unscripted series, films, music, and events. During my tenure at MTV, I launched several highly-rated and buzzworthy series such as 16 & Pregnant, Teen Mom, and Catfish: The TV Series. Additionally, I led press campaigns for the MTV Video Music Awards for over a decade. Currently working as a publicity consultant, I have worked with many high-profile clients, including AMC Networks, Amazon Prime, Apple TV +, Netflix, Discovery Channel, TLC, Nickelodeon, NBC Universal, and Tribeca Film Festival and have worked on communications and media relations campaigns for successful television and film projects including The Walking Dead, Tales of the Walking Dead, Anne Rice's Interview with a Vampire, Fear the Walking Dead, Dear Edward, Queer for Fear, Saloum, Boris Karloff: The Man Behind The Monster, Sissy, Cursed Films II, Teen Wolf, Don't Cancel Me with Amara La Negra, and many others.

PR is my day job but I am currently exploring screenwriting, and working on my first script.
