It all began at the age of five when her homemade soap commercials proved to Linda that she possessed a budding passion for creativity. When college rolled around she walked into BBC and landed her first job, meeting legends such as Alistair Cooke and Sir Richard Attenborough. The experience told her that public television was her destiny. And so it was to be! Over the years she used her writing talents as a reporter for the award-winning national news series Nightly Business Report as well as the travel adventure series Florida!, produced for both Public Television and The Travel Channel. Linda also created public television’s first national design series Decor with actress Dina Merrill which won national acclaim and went on to serve as a model for future design programs on cable and network television.
Yet, her first love was the documentary! As a producer of national documentaries for PBS, Linda created Vizcaya which was narrated by actor Andy Garcia and nominated for an Emmy in the Best Documentary category. Her most recent documentary for PBS, West Encounters East, showcased the emergence of Japanese Brazilian artists on the international arts scene, enjoying a long run at film festivals across the country including the New York City Independent Film Festival.
