About Tarah Michele
Tarah has been a go-getter since before she began her career in television. After graduating from Chapman University's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts in 2015, Tarah was immediately hired full time at Discovery Channel. At Discovery Studios, Tarah began developing television series when she was just an assistant. Creating, casting and storytelling quickly became Tarah's obsession.
Working in production at companies like Offspring Entertainment, Critical Content, and 495 Productions gave Tarah the experience she needed to apply for a traveling producer gig with Yoga Journal Magazine in 2016. Out of over one thousand applicants, Tarah was selected to travel the country as an on-camera host and executive producer. She conducted hundreds of interviews over the course of six months, researching the ins and outs of the health and wellness industry.
Tarah returned to Seattle after working with Yoga Journal and immediately began producing commercials with brands like Hint Water, Premera Blue Cross, AAA, T-fal, and Tomorrow Ideas. She led a large team to produce television commercials that gathered significant viewership and robust returns.
Not withholding her ambition for the big screen, Tarah connected with The Design Network, a streaming OTT television platform all about interior design and home. During her tenure as the Director of Programming, Tarah led the production and launch of over seven streaming television series, including one of which she starred in called "Design Buzz Season 2," currently on air. She was responsible for all series episodes, ensuring they met quality standards, storytelling tone, and energy. She also acted as the head of casting, scripting and was the director of all internal series including the hit show, "Couched With Carson Kressley" and an upcoming series, "Commissioned."
While at The Design Network, Tarah assisted in the partnership acquisition of streaming channels like Xumo and Vizio and contributed to PR and marketing efforts to promote each television series. Under Tarah's partnership, network viewership on Roku Channel, Vizio Watchfree and Samsung TV Plus significantly outperformed all previous network reach, pushing it to become the #1 home network on each respective channel.
Tarah is eager to connect with like-minded creators with a passion for innovation and a willingness to get risky and make a splash!
