Where It All

Started...

Today, as a Producers Guild of America member, I write, direct, and produce a variety of genres

of television and film. But,

my early days involved cutting my teeth as an intern in the Comedy Department at WME, production companies like Sharp Entertainment, and working as an intern and PA for popular Late Night shows where I learned to work with talent on all levels in high stress, fast-paced, quick turnaround environments.

MY JOURNEY

The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore

FAVORITE

FIELD PIECE

I WORKED ON

My first big jump came when I made the leap from being a PA in the SNL Film Unit to getting hired at The Nightly Show. I was one of the first 10 people on the staff and was able to be a part of starting a high-profile late night talk show from the ground up. I observed as Jon Stewart and Rory Albanese led the charge to round up the best talent in late night television.

Ultimately, I wore many hats, first working in the studio department finding footage for Larry to talk about during the main show and then ultimately moving into the Post and Field Departments where I learned Avid from professional editors.

 

The field team allowed me to use my already existing camera and audio skills to not only execute the actual production on segments for the show but become an AP in producing segments for our digital and film unit.

 

By the end of the three season run, I was effectively producing and directing short segments oftentimes involving high-profile talent like Jay Leno, Judd Apatow, Brandon Marshall, and more.

After the Nightly Show, I landed at MTV where I worked as a part of a 3 person writing team. My writing functions were mostly coming up with segment ideas and titles, writing jokes for Charlamagne and his correspondents, and writing the interview questions for his guests.

 

I also ended up producing Act 3 of the show which featured a live audience call-in segment where viewers could call in and talk to Charlamagne on-air. Needless to say, this was the most stressful part of the job, but we had a lot of fun!

Perhaps one of the most fun jobs I have had is working in the field department for Season 3 of Chris Gethard's Live talk show for truTV.

As Field Production Manager, I not only organized logistics, secured permits, locations, and talent, but also pitched creative, helped develop the field pieces and also did some camera work.

We traveled the US in the process and built some great memories!

Having met Jordan Carlos at The Nightly Show, we kept in touch and worked on many projects together. After The Nightly Show ended, I went to Jordan and asked him if he had any ideas for shows that we could pitch. He had the seedling of what became Headliners. I worked with Jordan to turn that seedling into a full blown digital series, ultimately selling the idea as a special for NowThis News (owned by Group Nine Media).

We partnered with Sarah Silverman's company JASH Network to produce the special which featured talking head commentary, man on the street interviews, and round-table discussions.

The final edit included appearances from Judah Friedlander, Genevieve Angelson, Akaash Singh, Carri Twigg, and more!

Blackfin > Becomes eOne > Becomes Lionsgate

From 2018 to December of 2023, I went on a journey filled with Mergers and Acquisitions that allowed me to write, direct, and produce over 40 hours of Unscripted Television, eventually following Blackfin TV from a small 10 person company to becoming a part of Lionsgate, one of the biggest indie studios in the world.

At Blackfin, I helped develop, write, direct, and produce the following shows and genres for Investigation Discovery, The Discovery Channel, The History Channel, and The Travel Channel:

  • How Not to Get Rid of a Body (1 episode for 1 season)

Historical Docu-Series

  • Brothers in Arms (3 episodes for 1 season)
