sub-genre media consulting focuses on business development projects in the entertainment and cultural industries as well as helping filmmakers, artists and organizations to distribute content and connect with audiences through innovative uses of new technology.

Public Speaking: I speak as a keynote speaker at numerous conferences and for a variety of organizations. For a sample of my presentations, please click on the "presentations" tab above.
