Los Angeles. Atlanta. Chicago.
So what's it like being raised by couple of clinical psychologists in Chicago's South Side? Apart from every bit as weird + wonderful as you think, somewhere along the way, I fell in love with the myriad of weird sh*t people say, do, + believe.
In high school, I fell in with the rough-and-tumble Speech + Drama crowd and the next thing I knew, I was waking up at 6am on Saturdays to pull on nylons + talk to walls in tiny voices. More bizarre behavior stoked by a love of performance and creation continued through my stint at Ithaca College, then drove me back to Chicago after graduation to study at The Second City + earn my proverbial stripes working in commercials, theatre, and independent film.
Then, armed with only an iMac + my own tenacity, I packed my worldly possessions + drove out to L.A. for Graduate School of the Hard Knocks. I hit the ground running, tackling any position I could to learn the ins + outs of the industry from various perspectives + stages. To date, I've worked in casting, talent management, development, + production. But it was while studying at the UCB that I began taking my own content creation to the next level, beginning with my irreverent comedy webseries, BURNING BRIDGES, starring Natalie Palamides. It went on to make the rounds at over 10 film festivals, earning "Best Webseries" at Miami Independent, and in turn, sparked a parallel career behind-the-camera...
While continuing to pursue short form content creation, I branched into writing music videos for internationally-renowned Atlantic Records + Dim Mak-repped artists with my partner, Joe Zohar of Moving Box [us], while simultaneously developing + refining my growing arsenal of spec pilots under the tutelage of my incredible manager, Ray Miller [Archetype].
After signing with Houghton Talent in Atlanta, I began working as a local hire in Hollywood East, + now happily jump around the continental U.S., relishing every opportunity to work on both the literary + talent side of episodic television, feature film, music videos, regional theatre, commercials, + voice-over.
Currently, you can find me working in development in the Los Angeles office of Fisher Steven's Insurgent Media + Cathy Konrad's Treeline Film.
