About Me


 Columbia-U-logo.pngHBO-logo.png   Fulbright-imgae.png  NU-Logo.pngSUNY-COIL-logo.jpg



As Managing Story Editor for HBO Films, and during time spent as a Fulbright Specialist researching Cross-Cultural Storytelling, I developed a keen understanding of strong narratives, both fictional and real. This led me to how I define myself now – a creative whose goal is to illuminate our deepest human needs.


I live in Los Angeles but was born and raised in New York City and often develop stories that feature the 'city that never sleeps' as a pivotal character.


I'm also a big believer in self-reinvention.  Upon graduating from Columbia University, I pursued a career in journalism and, later, worked in the film and television industry.  Another turn took me into academia where I joined National University in California creating the MFA in Professional Screenwriting Program. 


Now, I'm on a new adventure as a filmmaker and novelist and invite you to travel along with me!  Please feel free to reach out with comments or questions through the contact portal.
