they started me in the mailroom, straight out of college. in my first few months, you could find me on wikipedia researching what a “producer” did.
i was promoted to work in film talent and unscripted tv, then found a home in below-the-line representation.
i found myself working with Oscar winners and influential filmmakers.
the job was boot camp and taught me how the entertainment system worked. it was also a lesson in how people and negotiations worked.
after two years though,
i had to ditch the suit and tie.
