Title: SVP, Production and Development, Nickelodeon International Time at Job: 13 years. How did you get your first job in the biz? I wrote a begging note to The Jim Henson Company as I always wanted to work with Jim. He took pity on me and hired me. I got to hold Kermit! Dream come true. What do you hope you’ll see at the market? Same as always … great content, great partners, great characters, great stories. Biggest Red Flag when someone is pitching you: If they pitch me in the ladies’ room! Favorite show of the moment: There are far too many to choose from… New annoying trend in the biz: Nothing annoying springs to mind, but one big exciting trend is growing the linear business and creative to thrive in the non-linear future. Which animated character would you love to meet and why? The Little Prince, because he has grown old as I have. Best pop culture moment of 2018? I’m still awaiting it — we’ve got two more months to go! Favorite drink: That first morning tea.
