In the past several years as my career evolved, it naturally lent itself to building relationships with external companies.
I now have a great deal of experience working with some of the largest licensors in the creative and game industry.
When you build products that leverage high profile IPs, it's essential that you have the ability to build trust between your company and the one you are courting. There will always be ups and downs through a development cycle, but keeping things clear and concise helps build the bond.
Some of the licensors I've worked with: Fox, Disney, Nickelodeon, Hasbro, Warner Brothers, Marvel, and the NBA
Representing the company I work for, and ensuring the IPs we work on are honored and treated with respect. I hold bi-weekly syncs with our licensors to give them a thorough update on the status of all the wheels in motion.
