Hello! I'm Amy Mahon

I have over 15 years of experience in professional theatre, video, and TV production, and I am now a full-time business development professional at a nonprofit in Fort Lauderdale. In my career, I have worked as a freelance stage and production manager, SEO writer, short filmmaker, photographer, and script consultant for both screenplays and stage plays.

 

In my current role I plan exclusive member mixers through strategic venue and vendor partnerships, coordinate logistics for those mixers, and capture high-quality photos for Go Riverwalk magazine. When I worked in the theatre and film industry, I discovered that I have a knack for linking exceptional talent with producers and directors, as well as connecting vendors with production companies.

I love helping others establish meaningful relationships that can be personally, professionally, and creatively fulfilling.

 

I grew up in Fort Lauderdale, went to college in North Carolina, and earned a master's degree in film while living in Virginia for seven years. Currently, I reside in South Florida and am actively involved in the community. I serve as the Treasurer of the Board of the Nancy J. Cotterman Center and as the Secretary of the Board of the South Florida Theatre League. This alliance of theatre companies and professionals is dedicated to supporting and advocating for the growth of the South Florida theatre industry.

Want to work with me? Great! Please include exact dates, rates, and if housing is provided, if applicable. Also, a lot of people don't tell me about themselves in their intro emails, but I think it's really useful. Tell me about yourself and your company.

Some fun facts about me:

1. I am your grandma. I like strawberry bon bon candies and will give you some if you ask nicely.

2. I didn't go to my MFA graduation ceremony. I went to a punk festival in Richmond, VA instead. 

3. I studied screenwriting and have read hundreds of scripts but I will never forget the first time I attempted to read The Shawshank Redemption by Frank Darabont. I was so overwhelmed by how well he told a visual story through words that I had to stop a few times.

4. I once had a desk job that required me to be around dead bodies. I worked in a graduate health sciences admissions office and for some reason during Open House weekends I was in charge of unlocking and turning on the lights in the cadaver lab. The building had been purchased by the university from a meat packing company and in its renovation hadn't updated the electrics to have a light switch in the front of the lab, so you had to go all the way to the back to turn on the lights. One day I did and turned around to see 12 full-bodied dissection hoods laid out (which means exactly what you think it does). That was one of my last non-arts jobs I had before deciding that higher education administration wasn't the path for me, and I went back into the creative field.

5. I like to listen to stories as much as I love to tell them. Sharing stories is one of my favorite ways of getting to know a person.
