Before returning to the academy I spent five years working in television production with National Geographic. During this time I collaborated with scientists, artists, and other film-makers to communicate environmental stories to broad audiences through multiple Emmy-winning natural history film series. My roles in these projects included Segment Producer, Field Producer, Associate Producer, Lead Researcher, Media Manager, and Series Coordinator.
Please see below for more information about these projects. Screener copies of all projects are available upon request.
