A sincere and heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our clients in 2015. It was a year of wonderful growth and fine-tuning my speciality. It’s so easy in this business to be all things to all people, or atleast promise them as such. 2015 for me was about refining my speciality to really focus on those pain points for live production crews & producers. And also help connect my clients with some awesome production crews when we were not available. Looking forward to the year ahead.
Many thanks to everyone for a terrific 2014. I haven’t updated the site in some time because it’s been so incredibly busy.

The recent rash of ContentID claims across YouTube has threatened to strike down a fair number of the site’s channels. For creators who hope to make a decent living off of online video, contesting these claims is a must, but that step requires a dive into the confusing field of copyright law. link⇒
I had a lot of fun and ah-ha moments while video directing/switching for the 1st Young Women’s Conference @ Brentwood School here in Los Angeles. Hosted by Honorary Chair Maria Shriver, this conference was designed to empower young women; for them to take charge of the future in positive ways that influence and inspire others. Celebrities, actors, olympians and even fashion mogul Diane Von Furstenberg offered their wisdom to the young women!
Advocacy • Entrepreneurship • “Breaking the Mold” • Following Your Passion • Giving Back • Identity & Body Image • Personal Branding & Social Media Awareness • Relationships • Representation of Women in the Media • Transforming Stereotypes
“Young women today can be significant forces of change—in their own lives and in society.”
We started with a single camera, 320×240, SD, and a room mic. A small dream turned into a beautiful reality which I am ever so grateful. Our humble livestream ministry has grown to a crew of 4 directors, 2 producers and a lotta love!

I’m excited to be livestreaming a 3-city tour with Neptune Productions for the non-profit Bipartisan Policy Center. The tour kicks off at Ohio State University this month and will later include dates in Boston and Washington D.C. We will stream in HD on their Ustream channel, and include social media moderation along with instant archival services.
Check out the video below for the last event we livestreamed for them, held at the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley, CA. Really interesting discussions!
It was a blast livestreaming Emmys 2013 Red Carpet feeds and communication systems for San Francisco-based Popsugar.com. They had an interviewer, producer and camera crew on the red carpet. Using all IP-based technology, I was tasked with sending their HD camera feed and several Emmy-provided pool feeds back to the Los Angeles studio, along with ordering data lines and connecting our red carpet staff clearcom headsets back to the studio. It’s exciting to see this technology so much more affordable for blogs and small media companies!
POPSUGAR delivers the biggest moments, the hottest trends and the best tips in entertainment, fashion, beauty, fitness, and food, and the ability to shop for it all, in one place. With over 20M users and growing, they have offices in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and London. It’s been an honor to be a part of their production team this past year!
