 as a producer, i create the conditions for artists to realize their most expansive visions.

the story

what is a producer?

"Our job is to help nurture the ideal environment in which artists and their ideas can succeed."

what do i do as an independent producer?

In many ways, a list of tasks of what an independent producer does is inexhaustible and can vary highly from project to project. What I find my practice as an independent producer is comprised of includes:

  • maintain budgets

  • generate project timelines and strategies for implementing project goals

  • help artists stay accountable to their vision and the steps to manifest their projects

  • act as a sounding board for artists throughout their creative process 

  • attend to various stages of a project's lifespan, including incubation phases, development phases, production, and touring
