WHY AND HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE TOY AND GAME INDUSTRY?
Honestly, it was by pure accident… or fate. I moved to Los Angeles fresh out of college to work in entertainment at CBS, unfortunately or fortunately, the job I was offered was given to someone else. I was crushed, so instead of packing my bags and heading back home to NY, I went to a temp agency that ultimately placed me at Saban Entertainment / Fox Family Worldwide as the Executive Assistant to Haim Saban (CEO) and Mel Woods (COO). It was awesome. Talk about learning from the best. Haim and Mel knew the kids business inside and out. I learned so much from them physically and through osmosis. It was hands down one of the best work experiences of my life.
Two years after I started, Saban Entertainment / Fox Family Worldwide were sold to the Disney Company to become what is now
