Was part of core writing staff for The Quick and the Curious on Science Channel. I took complex scientific concepts and explained them in an accessible, theoretically fun manner. Pitched framing concepts, interesting stories, and then helped the head writer assemble them into episodes built around specific themes. Helped oversee editing on Avid. NOTE: Left show for four weeks to act as a story producer on another one of Karga's shows.
