Portland, Oregon, United States


I have five years of professional experience in campaign-based marketing and outreach for non-theatrical independent documentary film. I am a seasoned leader, and I have a developed ability to navigating complex challenges to successfully execute big ideas. I feel that film is one of the most effective mediums for educating and inspiring social change. My passion is in strategizing and developing grass-roots outreach campaigns to expose powerful films to a wide and empowered audience Skills include: Partner and sponsorship development, contract writing and negotiating, designing strategic outreach campaigns, keen understanding of documentary acquisitions and the marketability of content, developing and sourcing sales lists for the non theatrical documentary industry, branding development, working collaboratively with filmmaker clients to build more affective outreach campaigns as well as lasting relationships, advising filmmakers in the special features and curriculum planning to increase sales.
