Barbara's Profile

Experience Summary

As a graduate of the University of Miami with a B.S. in Communication and Psychology, I am eager to apply my creative abilities to all facets of the entertainment industry, particularly as it pertains to film, writing, and marketing. My objective is to expand my knowledge with valuable, hands-on experiences at growing companies such as yours. In addition to going on auditions and writing workshops, I am a poet, having published two books of poetry. I am currently working on a compilation of poetry, short stories, and monologues. I also love working with children as I have volunteered as a Wish Granter for the Make A Wish Foundation, and worked as a Tutor for Educational Tutorial Services.

Extra Information

  • Auditing

    Currently I am an Assistant to a Producer working on the development of a reality series and talk show. I handle scheduling and appointments along with other administrative and creative duties. I have also been the right hand of various events in college.

  • Chef

    I have volunteered for the Fort Lauderdale Film Festival, the 1st annual WestDoc Conference in Santa Monica (Sept 14-16 2009) and most recently the Film, Stage and ShowBiz Expo (October 17) at the LA Convention Center where I was a Floater and assisted one of the coordinators making sure all exhibitors were checked in and out, releases were signed, etc.

  • Event Management

    In college I was in charge of various social/service organizations such as Homecoming, MLK Day of Service, AIDS Awareness Week, and Spoken Word Wednesdays, putting on shows. These activities allowed me full control of management and execution. In the service projects, I had a team to which I assigned various duties ranging from booking a local radio station to securing vendors to food preparation. The Spoken Word Shows allowed me to facilitate the paperwork/contract process of booking a performer, hotel accommodations, etc.

  • Greeter / Host(ess)

    All of the projects I worked on called for me to be hospitable at all times, and even host the events I put on.

  • Merchandising

    I worked as a Research Specialist for the University of Delaware studying the population of African American drug abusers and sex workers. This required us participate in several outreach endeavors to present our services and recruit for the study. In the summer of 2006, I interned for Terry Hines & Associates, a company that handled publicity and promotions for Paramount and Sony pictures. I helped with press junkets and movie screenings and targeting our main markets: West Palm Beach, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa and Miami.
