I produce an average of 4 projects per year, 30 hours of content per project. My creative skills have proven to be an asset in areas from pre-production to post-production. I ensure smooth operations on filming sets and develop strong working relationships with many top networks, directors, writers, cast and crew, sponsorship in both Thailand and abroad. As a content provider, I constantly strive to provide relevant content to various platforms offline and online.

From content to services, people are navigating the sea of options with help from deep learning and algorithms.  I am interested to further research how digital innovations support better marketing decisions in consumer decision in the entertainment and media industry.

Statement of Motivation for a DBA

The media and entertainment industry landscape is constantly evolving, rapidly trying to keep up with digital disruption. Those that can’t keep up, perish, while those that survive adapt rigorously with the everchanging times. Now that traditional TV, an important pillar of our business is unquestionably dying, our futures shifts to online platforms. The core of my job is to understand what consumers want as ratings and sponsorship are what keeps us relevant.

I want to show my organization that I’m willing to go that extra mile to prepare myself for a senior level leadership role that awaits me. I believe this program will allow me to acquire advanced tools, research skills, and professional experiences needed for better strategic planning and decision making. This research journey will provide me the expertise to be part of a movement that creates riveting stories and introduces new content to viewers allowing them to dream big.
