About Margo

Performer, writer, storyteller. Represented by Hollywood Original Talent theatrically and commercially. Currently finishing the second year of a two-year program studying Meisner Technique with William Alderson in Los Angeles.

My fiction is represented for TV/film by Pooka Productions (@teampooka). I've written for Cricket Group's FACES magazine, and my young adult novel 30 DECIBELS is about a girl growing up in a quiet society.

I head up social media at the Television Academy (the people who bring you the Emmys). I studied design and music at the University of North Texas. After receiving UNT's Best Art Direction portfolio award upon graduation, I moved to Chicago and worked for Ogilvy & Mather, a large ad agency. I worked mostly with the Sears, Suave, Dove, and Kenmore accounts. My first TV spot aired during both the 2000 summer Olympics and "Who Wants to Be A Millionaire" – a surreal experience. I thank my first job for putting me on film sets and waking up a new facet of storytelling love. I'll pursue film for the rest of my life.
