I’m writing you from my new workspace at One World Trade Center to tell you about the next step of my career: I’ve joined Dreams, a live TV startup, as an Anchor and Editor. In addition to my eventual on-camera role, I’m working behind-the-scenes to help build out our platform, from both an editorial and talent perspective.
Dreams is based in NYC. When we launch, Dreams will be an original live news and culture channel. It was founded in 2016 by Tom Bender and Greg Hochmuth. Tom was a product manager at Google. Greg was Instagram’s seventh employee, where he joined as one of the company’s first engineers.
Fun fact: Among our investors… Kevin Durant! Yes, the two-time NBA champion and All-Star MVP. And yes, I bought a pair of KD11’s to celebrate the move.
I am immensely grateful to Tom and Greg for bringing me on board. Their ideas regarding what video content, specifically live video on mobile phones, should look and feel like are incredible. I find great joy walking in to 1WTC every day and collaborating with our team on challenges small and large.
With my new position, I feel rewarded both personally and professionally. This type of on-camera/behind-the-scenes position is exactly what I was looking for. And for the first time in my career, I’m not working weeknights… so yunno, I can actually have a life now.
Thank you to Tom, Greg and my new colleagues at Dreams, along with my friends, family and supporters who have been there every step of the way.
Now the really fun part: a call to action. We’re hiring! See the link in the comments to apply.
Thanks again and stay tuned for more info on our launch.
