I am a freelance writer, producer and researcher for film and television with an honors BA in Film Screenwriting and Producing from Columbia College of Chicago. With an emphasis on pursuing socially relevant themes in narrative and documentary format, I have been fortunate to combine my love of cinema and storytelling with my desire to affect change through social commentary.
I am currently producing the feature documentary THE THREE HIKERS which follows the story of the three American hikers imprisoned in Iran in 2009 and their families struggle to get them released. The film is currently in post-production and scheduled for completion in 2014.
I am also an Associate Producer for the feature documentary STATE OF CONTROL which follows the Tibetan uprising and ensuing media blackout during the Beijing Olympics in 2008 and the cyber-espionage that targeted the film production afterwards. It has recently received press coverage in The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, and The Washington Post and is scheduled to premiere on the festival circuit in 2014.
I am also a Producer for Ear On The Rail Production's feature-length narrative drama PAST GOD which premiered at The Beverly Hills Film Festival in May 2013 and recently won Best Feature and Best of Fest awards at The SoCal Independent Film Festival in September 2013.
