I am a partner in the law firm of Abdo Abdo Broady & Satorius and

I have worked extensively with documentary filmmakers and
organizations including Independent Television Service and TPT. I

1987; president 2002-2004. I was instrumental in organizing the IFP
National and serve on that board.
I have also produced documentary films and have a MA in film

Industries and serve as the Associate Editor of the ENTERTAINMENT
