Why did you want to be a Television Academy governor? I wanted to give back to the editing community and to learn more about the other peer groups through interaction with governors.
What do you hope to accomplish as a governor? i'd like to bring in newer members and help usher in the inclusion of streaming, short form and the full breadth of talent contributing to television editorial.
Why is the Academy important to the industry? The academy represents a standard of excellence that is reflected by, yet goes beyond, the Emmy itself, with outreach in diversity, honors awards, educational activities, archived interviews and much more. The Television Academy lifts the entire industry through its dedication to service, support and responsibility.
