Hey, I'm Ned. I would love to connect and see where there might be overlaps in our work. I am constantly looking for new partnerships across all my products and projects. Let's chat!

I'm a multi-hyphenate creative (one Fortune 500 executive called me a "factotum" in a job interview, which is the bougiest thing I've ever heard and I adore it), tech founder, entrepreneur, as well as an experienced executive assistant. I bring a unique skill set and perspective honed from working across a vast range of industries that can level up your project, team, or production. 


I have experience in industries such as entertainment, blockchain/cryptocurrency, SaaS apps, legal, finance, real estate, restaurants, and more. I am just as comfortable as an outward-facing member of a team, as I am an inward-facing person who helps bring the team to the next level. 

As a producer/content creator I've won awards for my wide range of content, including podcasts, web series, and albums. Every project I undertake is designed to not just be content of the highest quality, but products you haven't seen before. I take pride in developing work that fills holes in industries rather than recycles previously successful content.

My podcast Encounter Party! has been downloaded over 350,000 times, spent 7+ weeks on Apple Podcasts' New & Noteworthy charts and has charted for Comedy Fiction in more than 50 Countries. The show has been featured by Nerdist, Syfy Wire, and more. I also produced for Millennial, a Radiotopia podcast created by Megan Tan.

Given my experience in both the podcast and web series spaces, I partnered with the New Jersey Web Festival (one of the world's top-rated festivals for web series) to expand their offering to include Fiction Podcasts. As an Executive Board Member I am working with them to continuously elevate and support underrepresented web mediums in the entertainment landscape.
