Exactly 4 weeks from today is Hill Holliday’s 3rd annual TVnext℠ Summit. I absolutely love being part of putting on this event each year and am particularly psyched about this year’s program as we’re tackling some of the hottest topics about television right now – all wrapped around the theme “Belief + Behavior” – what we’ve believed to be true about TV contrasted with our actual (modern) behaviors around the 74 year old medium.
A few highlights:

When I’m asked what I do for a living, I say I’m a producer. Most people nod their head knowingly, but the truth is, producer can mean a lot of different things.
Before I came to Hill Holliday, I worked in film and television development and production—where there are many kinds of producers.
