                                            for its future.

                                            Stephen formally entered the production industry in 1990,
                                            accepting the position as General Manager of Feature Systems,
                                            Inc., a production rental company in Atlanta, Georgia. It was
                                            the owner of Feature Systems who first took notice of
                                            Stephen’s talents while he was working as the Director of
                                            Sales at Embassy Suites. Regardless of his inexperience
                                            within the industry, it was the client skills that caused him to
                                            be tapped by the CEO of Feature Systems. He overcame near
                                            total industry naiveté with his business savvy, natural instinct
                                            to create lasting relationships and foresight to seize viable

                                           During his twelve year tenure at Feature Systems, Stephen
cultivated a relationship with Turner Broadcasting Systems, Inc. as a first call vendor and was given the
opportunity to work on the company’s high profile productions. Additionally, he collaborated on many
music videos, commercials and other television and film productions, such as HBO’s “The Wire” and
NBC’s “Homicide: Life on the Street.” Stephen’s ability to establish long lasting client relationships
afforded him the opportunity to establish the company’s Baltimore office to better support his clientele.
Based on his success in Baltimore and position held as Board Member of the Association of Independent
Commercial Producers (AICP), Stephen added Vice President of Sales to his job title, representing Feature
Systems and its subsidiaries in this new role, ultimately allowing him to continue to build relationships
within the industry.

It was also during this time that Stephen took notice of the impending evolution of the industry and focused
his efforts to being on the forefront of change. The result was a business plan and the implementation of the
New York and Atlanta based Mobile Video Lighting, Inc., a company designed to take advantage of the
industry’s migration to digital production.

In 1995 Stephen founded the Georgia Production Partnership (GPP), a non-profit organization dedicated to
reversing the collapse of production in Georgia. Through grassroots efforts, GPP became the unified voice
for the industry and was a key player in the drafting and passing of several bills, including the Georgia
Sales & Use Tax Exemption in 2002 and the Georgia Entertainment Industry Investment Act of 2008.
These bills and the efforts of many other individuals have reinvigorated the production industry in Georgia.
Stephen also established himself as one of Georgia’s “faces of the industry,” and worked closely with the
Georgia Department of Economic Development and the City of Atlanta to shape the state’s entertainment

In his current role as Director of Strategic Production Partnerships and Studio Operations for Turner
Studios, Stephen raised the standard of production facilities for the iconic broadcast company, Turner
Broadcasting Systems, Inc. In addition to being responsible for the management and utilization of Turner
Studio’s six state-of-the-art television production studios and related studio location production units,
Stephen was proactive in establishing new business opportunities, capitalizing on his innovative business
ideas and established business relationships. Stephen has created an environment and built relationships
producing substantial new revenue paths for Turner Studios. Of note, he and Turner Studios have assisted
the BET Networks in producing their two highest rated shows, “Sunday’s Best” and “The Mo’Nique

Having organically grown his career, from copier salesman to hotel executive to International Account
Executive at AT&T to non-profit pioneer to his director level position at Turner Studios, all were made
possible by relationships. Stephen knows firsthand the importance of building and maintaining
relationships, as seen when he requested that the state’s Governor arrange access to a closed venue at
Georgia Tech University to his onetime client and now close friend, Executive Producer Will Packer.
Through Stephen’s intervention, production of the multi-million, #1 box office film “Stomp the Yard”
remained in Georgia.

The influence that these sort of relationships had on his own career path did not go unnoticed and became
Stephen’s personal secret to success. Reflecting on his career, Stephen prides himself that he has always
been hired by a client. Because of this, Stephen is committed to “paying it forward” and takes an active
role in mentoring. Sharing his expert insight, Stephen has regularly taught at the Production Assistant
Academy, has lectured at Georgia Tech University and has been a featured speaker to Women in Film and
Television. His philanthropic endeavors include having spent eight years as an active Board Member of
the Association of Independent Film Producers, currently serves as Co-President of GPP and as Board
Member of Readers Make Leaders, an organization that encourages urban teens to read and foster a
lifelong love of the literary experience.

Stephen resides in Smyrna, Georgia with his wife, Danila, and their twins, Adelayna and Charles. On
occasion, when he finds the time, Stephen can be found on the race track, be it driver or spectator,
indulging in a game of golf, at the ballet, or simply enjoying time at home with his family.
