About

I produce scripted projects for film, TV and web in addition to creating corporate and commercial content for brands including Macy’s and Maybelline. Recent work includes Dinette for BRIC TV, a retelling of the 1982 film Diner recast with all female and genderqueer talent, which premiered at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival; and Red States, a short doc for First Look Media’s Topic.com. I produced the comedic short, The Focus Group, which was included in New York Magazine’s Approval Matrix and Escape from Garden Grove, which was selected as a finalist in the Sundance Channel Shorts European competition. I majored in journalism at New York University and joined the editorial staff of InStyle Magazine where I wrote and edited articles for the publication’s fashion, beauty and lifestyle sections. At InStyle, I got my first taste of video production, supporting the brand’s executive producer in creating online videos for InStyle.com. I transitioned fully into the production world as an associate producer for Martha Stewart where I was a member of the team producing primetime television specials for MSLO and the Hallmark Channel. I was once trapped in a chicken coop with Martha but lived to tell the tale.
