Filmmaker. Her directing credits include a multi-cam network TV pilot for Freeform (featuring Emmy and Latin Grammy winning talent), and Meet the Zillas, an absurdist short film that won "Best Film Audience Award" at the Los Angeles Underground Film Festival. Shot in 4 days, it featured 27 principals and 40 extras including Jessica Pohly ("Pepper" from Pee Wee Herman's Big Holiday), Nancy Daly ("Suburbicon,"), Emmy-nominee Blake Berris, and Brandon Moynihan (aka “Captain Obvious").

TV & FILM writer, producer, director, editor. She developed the blade smith-competition format, "Forged in Fire" (History Channel) and two documentaries (on Al Capone and Richard Pryor) for PBS, as well as network pilots as director of development and production for Outpost Entertainment (an ITV company, the largest independent TV production company in the USA). She also had stints at Oxygen Media, William Morris Agency (now WME) where she assisted the worldwide head of TV literary, and at ICM where she assisted the head of theatrical talent.

Novelist and contributing author. She is author of LOST IN MANHATTAN, a novel that was previously in development at Oxygen Media, and contributed monologues to two comedy monologue books (Women's Comedic Monologues That Are Actually Funny, and Teen Girls' Comedic Monologues That Are Actually Funny).

Former fashion editrix. She created FASHION ALERT, a B2B e-zine (distribution 200K+) for MAGIC (North America's largest fashion trade show), which recorded the highest open rates in company history. As its editor-in-chief, she reported to Tom Florio, the former publisher of Vogue.

Performer. She made her stand-up comedy debut in 2010 and within two months was offered a contract by New Wave Entertainment. She has also performed sketch comedy off-Broadway in New York and worked with Francis Ford Coppola (who hand-selected her for Bram Stoker’s Dracula), and Ridley Scott (who cast her as a principal in a big-budget Guinness Beer commercial). Besides USC, she studied at the Beverly Hills Playhouse, The Groundlings, and is a member of SAG-AFTRA.
