About Hilary

Hilary is an aspiring editor, currently earning a Film & Television Production M.F.A. at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts with emphases in editing, directing and writing.

She focuses on creating content with strong female characters that is uplifting, adventurous, and funny. Movies like A League of Their Own, Star Wars, and I.Q., and shows like 30 Rock, Star Trek: TNG, Mork & Mindy, The X-Files, and Due South are some of her favorites.

Hilary studied abroad in Paris her senior year of undergrad and spent a great deal of time in the Sierra Nevada, Hawaii, and the Monterey Bay area – where she grew up. Visiting places like the Bodie ghost town, Volcanoes National Park, or Versailles and imagining the stories that could take place within them has influenced many of the stories she wants to tell.
