I received my BFA in Film & TV Production from NYU. After graduating from Tisch, I began my career specializing in girls’ media, the business side of animated content, and comedy development.
I began developing innovative business models for content creators with an agenda to tilt the Earth's axis, if only slightly, towards good. I believe that media should be as empowering as it is entertaining, and gained a creative edge by highlighting “media with a message.”
In my current role, I'm continuing to expand my love for all things funny and socially relevant as part of TBS' original scripted programming development team. I strategize as to what’s next, deliver what's new, and pull in fresh talent while also managing and maintaining current shows, such as The Last OG starring Tracy Morgan and Tiffany Haddish (the #1 cable comedy in 2018). In 2019, I received an Executive Shadow & Act RISING Award and was the first development executive to be interviewed on The Writer Experience Podcast, on an episode entitled “TV Development 101.”
Outside of the entertainment industry, I've dedicated myself to a lifelong pursuit of international exploration and service. From Cuba to Spain, and Ghana to Nicaragua, a bag is virtually always packed.
Traveling allows me to cultivate moments outside of my comfort zone, and a means to create deep and permanent shifts in my understanding about cultures unlike my own. I'm committed to elevating diverse stories in all of my artistic endeavors, and no voice is too small.
