PROTECT YOUR CREATIVITY

Focusing on the most meaningful aspects of your work while balancing the realities of financial and marketing pressures is a monumental task.

Let me help alleviate those pressures while you concentrate on your strengths and interests.

HOW I CAN HELP 

GIVING STRUCTURE TO CHAOS

Get organized, make sense of conflicting advice, chart a clear course forward and find a balanced flow that is nurturing to your core work.

BUSINESS PLANNING

Demystify business principles and map out achievable building blocks to growth and profitability.

FUNDRAISING

The money is out there. Talk to the right people in their language about the true value of your work.

MANAGING BUSINESS OPERATIONS

Share responsibility for key day-to-day business matters so that you can focus on the aspects of your work that you find most fulfilling.​

Whatever your resources - together, we’ll figure out how you can take the biggest and best step forward. 

Consulting fees can be customized for your unique needs and are based on the resources available to you, the scope of work and the level of my involvement. For ongoing business consulting, this usually means a monthly retainer with built-in hours. For individual projects, this usually means a reasonable percentage of the project budget. 

I AM BOTH KINDS OF PEOPLE

IMDb | LinkedIn

As a lifelong filmmaker, I understand the unique challenges artists face each day and I'm all too familiar with the tension between what's good for one's art and what's required for modern business. 

 

At the same time, I’ve been in organizational leadership positions at corporations like Google and The Honest Company and have helped launch well-funded tech and healthcare startups. As a result, I have a deep understanding of what makes good businesses work, and I've learned how to engage effectively with the financially-oriented, especially on behalf of those whose strengths are in other fields.

I’m always most fulfilled when I use my knowledge, skills and effort to make art and empower artists. If there’s a chance I can help you, even by just talking through a problem, send me a note. If we find that I can’t help, I’ll still be rooting for you!

HOW DO WE GET STARTED?

01

Send me a note

Provide a brief overview of your business and the kind of help you’re looking for.

(It’s OK not to know exactly.)

02

Let's talk

We’ll then have one or two introductory calls to define your goals and see if/how I can help.

03

I'll share my perspective

I'll lay out some ideas for next steps I think you should take, and we can decide if we'd like to work on them together.
