Host, Wake Up!
Prior to directing and producing Berni’s Journey, Slowey was in the private sector for more than 20 years in the financial services industry. After leaving the corporate arena, Slowey began business consulting and started her independent production company, Vast Universe Productions. Having managed several departments and multi-million dollar budgets, Slowey integrates creative perspective to strategic planning and business sense to artistic endeavors. Slowey’s previous experience in project management and commercial video production were transferrable skills she poured into her first film project, a feature-length documentary. Slowey has been obsessed with film since she saw her first movie in a refugee camp in Guam after evacuating during the Vietnam war, just days before the Fall of Saigon. After moving several times during her childhood, including living in Tehran, Iran, Slowey has called Colorado home since 1984. She lives in Denver with her husband and two sons.
