Joanne is well-known in the industry for producing quality documentaries, and earned an Emmy® nomination for her work on Brando (Turner Classic Movies) in 2007.


“My 16 years with Leslie and the Thinkfactory Media family have been a long, wild and wonderful journey,” said Rubino.  “I truly love what I do and am proud to work alongside some of the hardest working producers in the business. We’ve grown so much over the years and have no intentions of stopping anytime soon; I’m very excited for the road ahead!”


Prior to joining Thinkfactory Media, Rubino amassed experience across a myriad of areas in the entertainment industry. Starting out reading scripts, she later held positions at various production companies, before accepting a job at what was then known as The Greif Company (now Thinkfactory Media).
