Everyone always says that networking is about answering this question:
What can I bring to the table? What problem can I solve?
I have never been accused of wasting time, so let’s waste no time here — let me tell you, directly and firmly, what problems I can solve.
First, I bring a fresh set of eyes to any script and any problem. I am also a woman. Perhaps you noticed. Hiring women means you’re asking for someone outside the easy status quo to examine your project and ask questions you never thought to ask. I bring a different point of view and challenge myself and my team to think: how can I make this stronger, better, and more thoughtful?
I produce female-driven content — items I can star in myself or vehicles for underrepresented markets. Those are the stories I connect to on a visceral level; they are what I love.
I ensure safety in the work place and am proud to say that for the production of The Long Dig, I created a sexual harassment safety memo that has been shared on sets across town. Opening the door to discussion is key and I’m thrilled that so many of my colleagues are using a tool I created to do just that. I budget. And then I stick to that budget. I know people – crew! cast! and beyond! And here’s the biggie: I have navigated the ridiculous waters of SAG.
So there you go! I love bringing strong scripts to life and I’ve been so fortunate to do so with Amazon’s series Classic Alice and Not a Plan as well as indie sci fi darling The Long Dig. I can’t wait to make more!

Funding projects is always difficult, so I have been using Patronage to help spearhead some of my work. Patronage offers me the flexibility to keep creating and I put the money earned from that platform toward future projects like character-based photography, short films, series, and more in addition to using it to keep fiscally solvent in Los Angeles. If you like what you’ve seen on this page, I invite you to come join my team and be part of the wonderful set of financial backers who make my work possible.
