 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 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 find myself developing 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 in the film and television industry.  Another turn took me into academia and I joined National University in California where I created and ran an MFA program in screenwriting. 


Now, as I'm again at the beginning of a new journey I invite you to venture along with me!  Please feel free to reach out with comments or questions through the contact portal.
