In addition to helping actors finally write their damn script already (and know what to do with it) I’m also a Sundance award-winning actress (Special Jury Prize for Emotional Truth).
I'm a screenwriting coach, a writer, producer and actor.
When I stopped trying to figure it out all by myself, I got help. I studied with a working TV writer who showed me professional-level tools to finally turn my idea into a script I was proud of. Instead of creating in a vacuum, I learned a step-by-step process I could follow to get my script to the finish line. And I got there so much faster (and it was way more fun) than the painful process of going it alone.
That's why I created the Short Film Lab.
I’ve always been drawn to the Golden Age of Hollywood. I’m fascinated by the early days of this industry and the biographies of the major players...many of whom were women.
Before the Hays code brought censorship to “the pictures,” and before Hollywood was the boys club it later became, roles for women were incredible! They were unapologetic career women, writers, directors and producers. They embraced their sexuality, they were bawdy, and ballsy and modern...in the 1920’s!
