Are you a member of a Union (Actors - SAG/AFTRA/AEA, etc), (Crew - IATSE/TEAMSTERS, etc), (Director - DGA, etc), (Writers - WGA, etc) or any other Union not listed here.

I am a member of the New Orleans Film Society.

Are you an Actor, Extra, Crew (what is your specialty, i.e. grip, best boy etc), Producer, Director, Screenwriter, Film support (i.e. equipment rental, caterer, etc)? Basically please describe what it is you currently do in relation to films/TV.

As the director/executive producer for Southern Belle Productions, I do everything except pick up a camera and edit. You can view the company's site at www.SouthernBelleProductions.com.

What city do you live in? Which city would be best for you to attend a Monthly Meeting? Shreveport, New Orleans, Baton Rouge or Lafayette? Is there another city that you think we should hold a Meeting (one that would benefit many people)?

I can attend meetings in New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

What Film/TV Projects have you worked on in the past? What projects are you working on currently?

"Out of the Ring: Still in the Fight" 2013 (post-production) "I Thought It Was Forever" 2013 (Director/EP) "The Unlinkely Sex Offenders" 2011 (Director/EP) "From Wrong to Right" 2011 (Director/EP) "The Good Listener" 2011 (PA)

Why are you interested in the Film & TV Industry. What are your future Film/TV goals? What do you want to do in the future in relation to Film and TV? Why do you want to join this group. What do you think this group can do for you?

I love producing stories about people who face extraordinary odds. With traditional media saturating television and film, often the true stories of real heroes don't get half as much attention as the flash-in-the-pan subjects of the day. My goal is to bring my content directly to the target audience in addition to pitching my films to independent television networks like "The Documentary Channel" "The Audience Channel" and the "Independent Film Channel." Joining this group is a concrete way for me to share my experience as a television journalist-turned-film producer with other professionals and learn lessons from members as well. Ideally, I'd love to partner with some of the other producers on any level reflective of our common goals, experience and interests.

Introduction

I'm a film producer with more than 10 years of experience as a television reporter/host and paralegal.
