Hi! Mary Beth here, screenwriter and independent filmmaker living in Los Angeles. I have been working as an office PA with Comedy Central's digital division for the past year, and have also written, produced, and directed my own feature and short films. After engaging in some trial-by-fire education in the production world, I'm now looking to return to my roots - development! I am seeking work in development departments of all sorts - feature film, commercial, you name it. I have a keen sense of story and a passion for creating content that promotes diversity and inspires the imagination.
