As the head of several digital divisions at Turner Broadcasting, my work has been focused on developing teams internally or with 3rd parties to create a wide variety of exceptional product executions ranging from marketing sites, mobile apps, streaming services, social widgets, databases, ecommerce sites, and even physical media. I sought and worked with extraordinary developers, designers, and engineers. Below is just a small sample of my work, here mostly for Turner Classic Movies.
I was a founding member of FilmStruck, its SVP of Product, and lead on the core multi-platform design. FilmStruck was Turner Broadcasting first direct-to-consumer entertainment subscription on-demand service that offered film aficionados a comprehensive and constantly refreshed library of films across arthouse, indie, foreign, cult and classic Hollywood films.
Recent and legacy web design for TCM. TCM.com has seen many changes over the years and it remains today both a feature-rich experience on the programming of the network as well as a deeply rich information resource. I supervised a recent redesign of the site to be published Fall 2020.

Watch TCM is Turner Classic Movies’ TV Everywhere VOD service available on web, tablets and mobile devices. Watch TCM was initially designed to separate itself from the countless streaming services that provided little programming context or curation in the market while remaining a beautiful product to use.

Examples of of dozens of applications released for TCM over the years. The focus was always on great consumer experience, even if the content was a difficult fit. Watch TCM today, even on small handsets, remains one of the most feature and information rich mobile apps for any network in the world.
A wide variety of online work stretching back several years. I was able to originate the first complex strategy for TCM, taking them across changes in consumer preferences in how they wanted to consume entertainment information and media. This ultimately led to Watch TCM and FilmStruck, which would be the next generation distribution platforms for the network. Many challenging projects that covered an interesting spectrum of new tech.

I initiated and grew TCM's commerce business from zero to a $10M annual business in about 5 years essentially targeting the untapped millions of viewers who weren’t finding a one-stop shop to buy classic movie merchandise, especially the movies they loved and wanted to own. This included the Vault Collection, a Media-On-Demand line of physical media.
