    Content Creator

    Toni hired me as an editor to punch up a pitch reel she had put together for a show she was developing. She has a keen, incisive sense of story and a strong vision, with which she unfalteringly guides a project through development, production, and post. Above all, it was refreshing to work with a producer who was so positive and constructive throughout the editing process. I look forward to working with Toni again in the future.

    Toni is fabulously responsible and creative. She has boundless energy and enthusiasm and approaches every situation with a positive attitude and a multitude of ideas and approaches. She always delivers on time and goes the extra distance to get the job done. I'd recommend her without hesitation.
