Growing up in a family devoted to social justice endeavors and faith, Tamara Park’s passion for narrative and curiosity for the world took shape. She quickly came to believe that everyone has a story to tell. As a producer for Halogen TV, Tamara has chased down stories and interviewed remarkable people throughout North and South America, Africa and Asia.
Tamara trekked from Mozambique to Morocco, learning from African leaders for the Halogen TV original series Noble Exchange: Africa. The series was nominated for a regional Emmy. She then took rising celebrities on a journey of discovery and service for Noble Exchange: Latin America. The series received a bronze Telly award. Currently she is working on Tainted Love, a Halogen TV original series that explores sex-trafficking and spotlights the modern abolitionists fighting to stop it. She just returned from Thailand and Cambodia capturing stories of hope in the midst of heartbreaking exploitation.
Prior to producing at Halogen TV, Tamara worked in communications for a series of non-profits, studied and wrote articles in Jerusalem and scripted children’s videos in Brussels. After sallying through the Balkans and Middle East she authored the travel memoir Sacred Encounters from Rome to Jerusalem (InterVarsity Press, 2008).
Tamara lives in Charlotte, NC where she keeps extra running gear in the trunk of her car, dance shoes ready to go–despite a combative relationship with rhythm, and her passport close at hand.
