Can you imagine what it would be like to love your job?
Jared ponders this question daily, building inclusive work cultures through emotional intelligence and mindfulness at Walt Disney Television, where he oversees culture initiatives for Disney’s kids’ networks and television animation studio.
Jared discovered mindfulness in 2016 through the Search Inside Yourself program and has been invested in developing his mindfulness practice ever since. He’s attended multiple retreats, completed Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Mindful Self Compassion, and was recently certified to teach Search Inside Yourself.
His vision is to help transform the entertainment industry into a place where people are prioritized above all else; where curiosity, inclusion and diversity are values that organizations works toward every day.
Prior to his time at Disney, Jared helped launch ArtsEmerson in Boston, MA, a nonprofit film and theatre organization, as well as a design firm and a youth-run arts nonprofit in Connecticut. Jared is an voracious reader, blogger, avid cyclist, and host of dinner parties. He hails from New England and currently resides in Los Angeles.
