I am a filmmaker, entrepreneur and social philanthropist working to enrich, educate and inspire people through cinema and innovation. I believe that stories are humanity’s greatest asset to helping us connect, learn from our pasts and shape our futures. Whether told through film, documentary, television or digital media, it is my firm conviction that stories, told well, have the capacity to positively impact our relationships, our lives and the world in which we live.
I have spent nearly all of my life nurturing my love for compelling storytelling. Over the span of my career (11 years and counting), I have worked in film development, production and international distribution in hubs like Tampa Bay, Los Angeles, New York and London. I have also worked in the non-profit sector, which has provided me with some of my most rewarding experiences. As a result, my for-profit business model has a built-in philanthropic arm by which I intend to measure my overall business' success.
In 2014, I founded Beam-In Studios as the content-production arm of a bigger enterprise - Beam-In, Inc. - a venture that melds my love for storytelling, technology, entrepreneurship and philanthropy. I hope for this company to pave the way in re-inventing the entertainment consumption model as well as help set the course to re-invigorate and reform the nation’s public education system through the E² Foundation charged with the mission to create new K-12 curriculums that will embolden and mold students into 21st Century visionaries.
My ideal partner(s), first and foremost, shares my passion for visual storytelling and its capacity to help people evolve and connect. He or she has the ability to see my vision while also being able to provide insight and perspective that may help refine and advance it. He or she has holo technology, engineering, computer software and/or social network development experience.
I am also seeking a leading mind in the non-profit sector to spearhead the initiatives of the E² Foundation. More information about the Foundation's specific initiatives can be found at http://www.beaminstudios.com/#!e-squared-foundation/cb3i.
I am very excited about Beam-In's future and look forward to forming creative and nurturing partnerships which will aid in bringing the company's objectives to fruition. After all, success is a journey...best navigated with allies.
