Cile’s expertise puts her on the frontline as a lead content producer, client manager and creative influencer. For 25 years, Cile has carefully assessed people, culture and information as a journalist and a documentarian, translating the information into relatable stories and authentic brands.
A successful media producer, Cile is the co-founder of Electro-Fish.
