Georja Skinner is a Hollywood native who has called Hawaii home since 1980. An Emmy nominee, Skinner was the first female sound mixer in network television on shows such as All In the Family, The Jeffersons and Hallmark Hall of Fame specials.
In 1983 she established Skinner Communications, Maui’s first public relations firm, which was acquired by WPP Group’s Hill and Knowlton Communications Pacific in 1990. In January 1994, Mayor Lingle appointed her as Maui's first film commissioner where she helped attract film, television and commercial production to island.
In 1999 Skinner launched Hawaii’s first film school program in association with USC School of Cinema-Television.
New World Library publishes Georja’s first book, The Christmas House, in Fall 2005.
She joins the Puppet Studio to develop quality television projects and feature films.
