Our Team

Cynthia & Chet (Andrew and Lerin's Wedding)

Co-anchored by Cynthia & Chet Barnard, a husband and wife team of 40 years

Cynthia is the creative component of the team – a Shaman Healer, Teacher, Mystic, Mother of 4 Children and a “uniquely” talented screenplay writer.  Her stories have been influenced significantly by her own personal journey of discovery and awakening.  Over the past 30+ years, she has studied the mind, body & spirit connection with Shamans in Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, Tibet, Nepal, India, Australia, Greece, England and the United States.  In addition to her passion for writing, Cynthia maintains a small private practice as a Shaman Healer.  Her life is exciting and balanced, as she is the backbone of their family of 4 children (soon to be 4 grandchildren) and husband/partner, Chet.  Cynthia is also recognized for her fashion and style.  Winning an Oscar for ‘Best Original Screenplay’ is one of her dreams!

Chet has been an Executive and CEO of numerous venture capital (VC) backed software companies over the past 25 years.  He has been successful in growing companies by creating value for shareholders, through understanding the dynamics of markets and the importance of client’s needs.  His belief in Magic-Wand Productions’ philosophy & vision, and specifically his wife, Cynthia, has led him from Boston to Hollywood to pursue their dreams.
