Describe your career path.
I would say my biggest accomplishment was changing the landscape of Hollywood film coverage, embracing Independent films with diverse casts, and giving them a national and International platform to have a voice, and animation.
I would like to produce original content for film, TV and streaming outlets. Also, as an Independent Board member on the HFPA board, I want to be a part of bringing Diversity, Equality, Inclusion and Mentorship to young journalist wanting to work in an International space. I love the Golden Globes.
