Executive Vice President, B17 Entertainment
“Being a film and media studies major at Hopkins was a huge differentiator for me when moving out to LA to work in television. Agencies, networks, and production companies knew of the intellectual prowess of the school and it was Professor Mark Friedman who helped me to get my first job through his own Hollywood agent. Close production work with Professor Mann and analytical writing and reasoning with Professor DeLibero helped me to excel in such a creative business. There’s simply no replacement for being given the chance to cut actual 16mm film on a flat bed and tape it back together to tell a story.”
