Other Work History

For six years (2009-current) I have served as Producer, Writer, Director, and CEO of Two Cousins Entertainment, an independent production company encompassing a diverse slate of feature films, television series, documentaries, theatrical productions and web content. In my capacity there, I provide strategic leadership to dedicated teams in creative development, acquisition, budget management, PR, product packaging and branding. I oversee properties through the entire cycle from development, production and post production to distribution, social networking and marketing. Among my responsibilities are creating business plans and investor presentations, securing distribution deals for TV, online and retail sales, and managing budgets up to $500,000. I also served for three years (2002-2004) as the New York Deputy Director of the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy where I organized events and academic conferences bringing together leaders in politics, academia, business and the arts to build intercultural bridges.
