It

has been 20 years since I published the highly-praised Los Angeles Theatres Magazine, currently archived at The Lincoln Center in New York. Since then, I’ve worked at various Hollywood studios, advertising agencies, pharmaceutical and financial companies in the roles of Creative Director and Account Director.  The key knowledge I have gained out of wearing different hats is that directing is only a part of the puzzle.  Understanding the front and back ends of how to stay current with social outreach is key.  I have educated myself to know these different mediums, which circles back to my entrepreneurial side, by creating my web development company Pixelem .
