Creative Writing

Writing is both a hobby and career aspiration of mine. I strive to connect with the people who read my work, to find the truth in my own emotions to connect with others who may feel alone.

I’ve also been given the opportunity to write for publications such as Femsplain to touch on the unique struggles of women in this day and age.

Smashing Some Glass

When I’m not lounging around in Queens, I’m often in Brooklyn collaborating with one of my favorite people, Danny Behar, making weird, short videos to fight off boredom.

This video was inspired by a $2 glass from a thrift store. I directed and shot this video. Danny nailed it with the editing. If you don’t hire me, consider hiring him.

“Like Glass” – a short film

This summer in New York City, I had the wonderful experience of working on Like Glass, an exceptional short film that is currently in post-production.

I worked hard and quickly moved from PA to Project Manager, helping Producers with every aspect of behind the scenes work, including craft services, paperwork, talent wrangling, prop design, location managing, and equipment loading. My friends at Little Blondie Films and StoneStreet Cinema taught me so much about responsibility, and the enormous effort behind the hustle of getting a low budget film made.

Check out their fundraising page to see a trailer for the film. It’s worth your time.

“And All Points in Between” – 48 Hour Film Festival Winner

 

My friends and wonderful colleagues at Making Pretend Productions invited me to help them participate in the 2017 New Haven 48 Hour Film Project. We exhausted ourselves and our creativity to write, produce, and edit a film, all within 48 hours.

All Points In Between was the recipient of Best Film, Best Sound Design, Best Editing, and Best Directing. We were also nominated for Writing, Sound Design, Best Cast, and Best Actress.

Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness

The most amazing opportunity I’ve received in my studies was the chance to work at Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness for two summers in New York City. Working under three of the top commercial producers in the country taught me an incredible amount about the business of television, and the business of working with people.

Small Things is an example of work I was tasked with doing for the 2016 Small Things Big Impact company-wide campaign.

 

 

Blue Wall: The Series

Blue Wall: The Series is an exciting upcoming story of a band of cops who go above the law, when a drug bust that goes horribly wrong comes back to haunt them in unimaginable ways.

I have had the privilege of working for director Sheila Simmons on this dynamic and challenging project. It has taken me all over New York City, including a prison, forcing me to adapt and keep actors and crew informed and happy. Roles include Production Assistant, Project Manager, Talent Wrangler, and Director’s Assistant.

Hunter College Studio

At the beginning semester, my Advanced Television Studio class decided to create a channel full of various and exciting types of video content. Each student was responsible for producing at least one video project for the channel, as well as taking on different roles in a studio environment.

I’ve been lucky enough to take on many different roles within the studio production. I was the co-head of social media, as well as the primary editor of video content. Here are some highlights:

Director & Editor


Assistant Director & Editor


Executive Producer & Host

 

Project UROK

I have had the privilege of working for Project UROK, a non-profit organization dedicated to removing the stigma associated with mental illness. I assist talent and the production coordinators with research and fact checking, and help the director with setting up and breaking down the set.
