I am a comedic director and writer specializing in female-driven narratives. My type-A personality strongly informs my style of storytelling, which is quick, precise, and focused. A survivor of 13 years of Catholic school, I love creating work that is irreverent, particularly when discussing the female experience.
I was born and raised in Cape Coral, Florida and later attended the University of Michigan, where I earned a BFA in Acting. I continued my education in Los Angeles, studying TV Writing for half-hour comedy at UCLA Extension and improv and sketch at Groundlings and UCB.
My directing career began in the sketch comedy world, with my work being featured on the homepage of Funny or Die and Elizabeth Banks’ WhoHaha. In 2018, my comedic short, Bitches by the Sea, screened in Paul Feig’s shorts contest at HBO’s Women in Comedy Festival. My most recent film, Ride in Progress, is set to premiere in the 2020 festival circuit.
My hobbies include hiking, reading, and trying and failing at online dating. When I’m not on set, I can be found at happy hour.
