Paula lives in New York City where she works as graphic designer, actor, writer, and director/producer.
Paula is the founder of Caffe Latte Productions, The The Portions Channel (https://www.youtube.com/portionschannel) which features short character driven comic stories that stand alone as slice-of-life moments; portions of our shared experience; and is in production on works for the City Stories Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC16Z6v_91hX69isudRoij6w)—At any given moment an experience becomes a story; a street becomes a city; an individual becomes a community.
Paula studied English Literature at Columbia University, and Fine Art & Graphic Design at The School of Visual Arts and The Art Students League before realizing that performing, directing, and writing are way more fun than sitting in an office—although she does enjoy working on challenging freelance graphic design projects from time-to-time, or cranking out the occasional watercolor sketch.
