“Let’s talk about writing creative commercials/promos/interstitials, even full blown shows that keep the viewer/listener glued for more. There is one person who I’ve worked with over the last ten years that not only knows these creative techniques in 3 languages but delivers the goods every time, which is no simple feat. She is a seasoned, and a well respected producer/writer/director who has, and will continue to have, a wonderful career in the field of broadcast. Enjoy her insights and stories in the world of broadcast. She has much to offer.”
