I’m originally from Montclair, New Jersey and found my way into the creative arts as an actor and singer, doing regional theater from a young age. I segued into writing when I started thinking about films I wanted to star in, and ended up applying to NYU for Dramatic Writing. There, I found a passion for helping develop other people’s scripts, and took up a minor in Film Producing, which allowed me to secure internships with Ivanhoe Pictures, IndieWire, James Schamus’ Symbolic Exchange, and, more recently, Andrew Lauren Productions and Cinetic Media. While I’m still navigating my place in the film industry, I’m definitely leaning more towards development/film sales/management. They’re all different focuses, but use a lot of the same tools.
