I write premium web series as well as branded content and comedy sketches that are aired on the company's YouTube Channel (1.5M Subscribers). Being that it is a media company I also have the flexibility to produce and direct some of my own projects. This has been valuable in that I have been able to lead a project from pitch to script to production to post production and finally to sharing with an audience.
