I am looking to expand to the 'next level' of my career, how I get there I don't know, but I feel as though I need a Svengali-sponsor-mentor to recognize the immense yet underutilized (that's a long story in & of itself) talent and help me channel it into these certain stories that need to be told.

Currently developing unscripted series for networks, seeking representation and the right Executive Producing team to shepherd feature projects and episodic series (a la AMC or Showtime). I am (finally) ready. I've put in my time and learned my craft, impeccably. Now it's jst a matter of the right collaborative alchemy.
