Monica West


San Francisco, CA, USA


Hi! I'm a writer/producer based in the Bay Area. Before moving west, I worked in NY and Chicago as an actor for about 15 years. I'm drawn to stories about real people in tough situations that alternately make me want to laugh and cry. Last May I gave birth to my son, Isaiah. Becoming a mom has influenced my work and given me a new perspective as a writer. One of my goals this year is to direct the pilot of my limited series, HOMEGIRL, about a traditional Midwestern woman who goes to computer coding school as a last resort to support her growing family.
