I am a writer, filmmaker, and all around human, born and raised in Charleston, SC and currently living in my mother’s ancestral home of Brooklyn, NY. I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a degree in Human Geography. Most people do not know what that means. I often miss the mountains.
I began working in media and film in 2009 and have worked on music videos, commercials, and numerous films, from Camera PA to Assistant Editor, as well as in festival programming. At one point in time, the sentence "Ashton Kutcher pays my bills," was factually accurate. I then joined @radical media as a writer and in creative development on branded content, digital content, and television and film for two years. I have been freelancing as a copywriter at Ogilvy & Mather since Fall 2014. I am also currently studying sketch and improv comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade.
I have always been guided by my love of storytelling. And sandwiches.
In my free time, I practice yoga sometimes, marathon Netflix often, and raise a rescue calico cat named Roxy always.
