I pride myself on bridging the gap between business results and creativity. I listen to the needs of clients and produce deliverables that both meet those needs and are in sync with their unique brand characteristics while being dedicated to being on point, on time, and on budget.
“Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire; you will what you imagine; and at last you create what you will.” – George Bernard Shaw
My experience includes Concept Development, Producing, Directing, Writing, Interviewing, and Editing for the STARZ and ENCORE Channels; on-air, marketing, on-demand and social media. I have created movie promotions, entertainment programming and been involved in channel branding. Also, I have directed VO talent and actors on shoots winning Promax Gold (the world's premier celebration of outstanding achievement in entertainment marketing and design) https://promaxbda.org for “Into the Scene".
In addition, I have interviewed over 100 celebrities, directors, and politicians at film festivals, movie premieres, award shows, etc.
My previous expertise was in Production Management as a Buying/Scheduling Manager streamlining processes for Micro Motion (Emerson) in the US and The Netherlands.
Teamwork is a valuable tool I have learned throughout my career and strong communication has been key when I have been in circumstances of achieving a desired product in a limited time frame and budget while under variable environmental conditions.
I hope to take my talent, expertise and experience and make a difference by influencing others in a positive way.

I’ve had the pleasure of working along side Marilyn for many years - and I mean along side. She really rolls up her sleeves! She is the definition of Collaborative Partner. Bubbling with new ideas, and loves to brainstorm with a team.
She delivers work spot on, no matter what the Directive. She brings so much to the table from the conceptual level right through final execution with a positive attitude, worthy of admiration. Incredibly dependable, patient, thorough and professional. A strong asset to any team.

Marilyn is one of my all time favorite producers! I had the pleasure of working with her many times here at STARZ. Her creativity and work ethic are second to none. In my 28 years of working with some of the most visible talent in the business, Marilyn is right up with the best. I highly recommend Marilyn for whatever you need!
