Hi, thanks for stopping by.
I am Senior Director of Corporate Communications at WarnerMedia’s Studios and Networks Group, home to such entertainment brands as Warner Bros., HBO, HBO Max, DC, TBS and TNT. Our team builds brand awareness, amplifies executive leadership and generates global publicity.
Prior to this role, I served on WarnerMedia Entertainment’s award-winning PR team as Senior Director of Corporate Communications, with much of my focus on HBO Max’s programming.
From 2016 to 2018, I headed up PR at Super Deluxe, Turner’s disruptive, multi-platform studio and entertainment brand, during which time I was honored to be named PR Executive of the Year by the PR World Awards.
I joined Super Deluxe following a 15-year career in journalism, 10 of which I spent at the Los Angeles Times as an editor and writer, launching two millennial-skewing entertainment and lifestyle publications and leading the digital newsrooms for the Opinion and Entertainment sections. I conceptualized and developed editorial products, project managed enterprise content, took the lead on live coverage, restructured departments, guided teams, and significantly increased readership.
Clear communicator with a keen sense for pitching story angles and spearheading news announcements that resonate with the press.
Springing into action for breaking news. (Old habits…)
Keeping up with media trends, audience interests and data insights and applying that research to promotional strategies aimed at building brand equity.
Managing promotional and awards campaigns, media launches and multi-platform projects from concept to completion: establishing goals and timelines, figuring out logistics, anticipating and solving problems, working directly with departments and facilitating collaboration between teams, and creating playbooks for all to follow.
A few kind words from my bosses:
“Gifted storyteller,” “full of ideas,” “takes charge,” “extraordinarily hard working, smart and thoughtful,” “ability to turn every obstacle on its head,” “indefatigable,” “ambitious, but also kind,” “technologically modern and journalistically grounded,” “infectious enthusiasm.”
When I was at The Times, an editor wrote in my annual review that no one in our department cared more about readers than I did. It was the ultimate compliment. I am a voracious reader; good stories are what make my heart beat. No matter what position I hold, the passion to tell meaningful stories that have purpose and make a connection is always my North Star.
Some other things about me:
I love cultural criticism and deep-dive profiles and wish I had all of the time in the world to read magazines cover-to-cover. Screeners the ultimate work perk; I want to watch everything! I wish I listened to more music, but there are just too many podcasts competing for my attention. On the days that I don’t wear black, white or grey, it freaks people out. I devour kale and candy in equal measure and am hoping everything turns out OK. Hot yoga is my escape. I live in the Mount Washington neighborhood of Los Angeles with my husband Aaron, our daughter Margaux, and our dog Ace.
