Gail has over 20 years experience as a producer and production manager. Some of her credits include, PBS “Great Performances,” documentaries for MTV, and TLC, and commercials for Herbal Essence, Disney, Bud Light, and BP to name a few.

Over the past few years she has worked to create an independent non-profit film commission for Columbus and Central Ohio. The Greater Columbus Film Commission is focused on enhancing the independent, feature, and commercial film industry in the region and is actively promoting Central Ohio as a premier filming destination.

Ohio Lt Governor Lee Fisher appointed Gail to the newly formed Media Advisory Board and Film Task Force to look at how Ohio can bring in more production work to the state. Partnering with the Ohio Film Commission and the Cleveland and Cincinnati film commissions, the Greater Columbus film commission is working to bring tax incentives for filming in Ohio.

I write, direct, and produce feature length movies.

My first feature, Passing the Bar, won second place, out of thirty five entries, in the comedy division at the Indie Gathering Film Festival.

My second feature, Six Days, will premiere on November 1, 2008. The movie tells the story of a pizza maker who has six days to pay off a five hundred thousand-dollar debt to the mob. Six Days features many talented actors from central Ohio and was shot in Columbus, Cleveland, California, and Las Vegas.
