My ADVANTAGE is that I have 24+ years of firsthand country, culture, language, history, nationwide geographical assets (www.GERtoGER.org), management, film/tv industry expertise (a couple decades), and more – I’m 100% a contributor towards YOUR success… I’m YOUR EXPERT Mongolia Production Manager/Field Producer – while everyone else will manage your production like a “group tourists with cameras” that need to be fed and transported. And unlike studios that promote themselves as being “fixers” – I’m NATGEO Geotourism Ambassador – I have spent decades out in remote rural locations managing social economic development initiatives for Mongolia’s nomadic populations and rural communities; not in studios – I’m beyond field tested and then some.
I’m an AWARDED international specialist.
