Screenwriter / Director

Redondo Beach, California, United States

I began my dance with storytelling at the age of six, as a child actor, absolutely enamored with set-life and performance. Naturally, my talents evolved and my love for being in front of the camera expanded to stage performance. I received my B.F.A. from UC Irvine in Theater with a minor in Playwriting. After returning to the silver screen for a bit, starring in indie films and larger theater productions, I decided that I wanted to expand my voice and journeyed to school to learn behind the camera magic. I have my M.F.A. from USC in Writing for Film and Television. My entertainment company, Unpaved Rodes, develops projects that champions the warrior in all women. During my spare time I work with The New Hollywood, a non-profit dedicated to expanding social consciousness within the entertainment industry and I continue to try to raise my two pretty-cool adult children and three dogs.
