I was raised by a family of creatives, in the woods of Northern Westchester, NY, and though I was always active in artistic endeavors, I fell in love with making movies while studying Film & TV Production at NYU.
I am a writer/director who makes richly sound designed films that use humor to push boundaries and social consciousness. My short film Infallible (17 min) a dark fairy-tale, won the Visionary Award at the Visions Film Festival (2011) and I have since directed more than 20 short films, music videos and webisodes. My surreal drama, Exit Interview (8 min), about a man trapped in an existential crisis at his job screened at both the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival and the Orlando Film Festival (2017). I was one of six directors selected to helm an episode of Pitch Her Productions first episodic lab, Run-Ins, and most recently, I directed Seven Fishes (9 min), a funny drama set on Christmas Eve that deals with mental illness in an Italian-American family, which is wrapping up post production. I also direct theater and was awarded Best Director and Best Play at two separate NYC one-act festivals for my work Disappearing (2013) and Sleeping With Earrings On (2014). In 2018, I was a fellow in New York Women in Film & TV’s From Script to Preproduction Lab, with my debut feature, Someone to Watch, which is now in development. In 2013 I was highlighted as an Emerging Filmmaker to Watch in Miramax's Blog and additionally, I was the keynote speaker at the 2016 Visions Film Festival & Conference. B.F.A. Film & TV Tisch School of the Arts - New York University.
Over the past decade I have freelanced as everything from a Production Sound Mixer to a Creative Producer and Assistant Director for both scripted and unscripted content. I love all the different opportunities to collaborate on projects that are foreign to what I usually make! One notable highlight was getting to work with Warner Brothers to adapt and co-produce/direct a Scooby Doo choose-your-own-adventure audio play for the Amazon Alexa platform!
