About Monica

I graduated with an MFA from USC's School of Cinematic Arts in Film and Television Production, and received a BA from the University of Pittsburgh in Film, Literature and Ancient Language. I've written, directed, and produced multiple projects in various formats and am currently raising money for Children's Project which combines media and project-based learning for kids for the nonprofit musicwell. To learn more about musicwell, check out

I directed "King of the Road", a motorcycle action-adventure short film starring Miles O'Keefe (Tarzan, 1981), where she lead a high profile crew that included DP Rick Drapkin (Director of Photography, Medium), Stuntman Monte Perlin (Rush Hour 3, Mr. & Mrs. Smith), and Stunt Coordinator Justin De Rosa (Hook, Sister Act), with the guidance of Producer John Watson (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves).
