I recently completed my first feature film, Leave Yourself Alone, which I wrote, directed, produced and starred in. This past year, I was selected by Women in Film’s Oscar-winning President, Kathy Schulman, Twilight author, Stephanie Meyer, and Lionsgate to direct one of their seven original Twilight shorts, The Groundskeeper. I was honored at the Crystal and Lucy Awards as a Voice of the Future and the film was presented at the Arclight Hollywood followed by a Q&A with Stephanie Meyer and the directors. My senior thesis film, The Apartment People, won the University’s Derek Freese Award for best film and best screenplay. I moved to New York shortly after and have been working in art research, graphics, and art direction on films such as the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis (2013), Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck (2015), and Jodie Foster’s Money Monster (2016). In addition to the lead role in Leave Yourself Alone, I have acted in many other shorts and features, and had a supporting role on NBC's, Do No Harm.
