    Jennifer Fiore's leadership and management experience extends across media, non-profit, corporate, and educational institutions, including HBO, Women Make Movies, The Producers Guild of America, PBS, The University of South Florida, Ruth Eckerd Hall for the Performing Arts, and the Straz Center for the Performing Arts.  Most recently, she worked on the set of the HBO TV series "Succession," and is currently working in media, communications, and human resources at the Practising law Institute, an award-winning media, publishing, and educational organization for lawyers and financial professionals.  She is also on the team of multiplatform media producers for the startup Technodramatists (visit http://www.technodramatists.com/ ), which creates live theater productions with storylines extending to films and web content.

    Jennifer brings her diversified knowledge and experience in media, the arts, business, management, and the law to the courses she teaches.  She earned a MA in Media Studies from The New School's graduate Media Studies Program with a certificate in Media Management.  Prior to The New School, she earned her undergraduate degree in English from Bryn Mawr College, her A.S. in Film Production from Full Sail University, and her Law Degree focusing on IP, Entertainment, Business, and Media Law from Stetson University College of Law.  She has taught "Legal Issuses" courses (both face-to-face and online) to entertainment, media, photography, fine arts, and music professionals.  Her legal background is an added resource and benefit for students in her courses since she provides crucial skills and insights into different facets of the law that come into play in creative production and IP, distribution, contracts, employment, and business negotiations.
