As a filmmaker, she is one half of the creative team behind Be Films & Five Story Media, both based in Philadelphia, PA.

Colleen is guided by her own personal experience as a creative entrepreneur when counseling fellow artists. She understands that creative entrepreneurs have unique needs and observe unique schedules; that their “property” is often intangible; and their work means so much more than a paycheck.
