Even as a toddler, Anna was incessantly fascinated with the power of words. Inspired by the movie and television era of the 80's and 90's, she began crafting dramatic stories as soon as she knew how to write.
Armed with nothing but a productive, albeit naive and stubborn creativity, she wrote her first feature length screenplay at the tender age of sixteen--a dark and bold teenage drama called “Life’s A Bitch”.
Like many creative individuals in dire need to pay the bills, Anna has worn many hats over the years. With the ultimate goal of eventually working on the creative end of show business, she has spent the last two decades immersed in a variety of professions; as a TV and photography makeup artist, a fitness trainer and content creator, and a five time business owner entrepreneur.
Although her true passion has always been telling stories that convey and evoke raw human emotion, Anna’s multi-faceted background has given her a wide range of unique and direct experiences that make her storytelling more authentic and genuinely inspired.
Originally trained in classical performing arts and literary English, Anna started off her professional writing career in late 2012 as a health and beauty columnist for Millennium Magazine. After a few years with the New York based lifestyle publication, she moved on to accept a full-time copywriting position at a prestigious PR and advertising firm in Los Angeles. The ability to handle large volumes of writing assignments with meticulous skill made her a high demand asset, and she was soon trusted with large-scale clients such as Biscoff Cookies and Antolini Italy.
Anna’s passion for the written word eventually led her to the full service marketing agency NMI Interactive, where she currently works full-time as a senior copywriter and ghostwriter.
A professional ghostwriter by day and aspiring screenwriter by night; Anna has found that learning to capture the essence of her clients’ voice in a way that generates and resonates with a certain audience, has proved itself an unconventional, but invaluable school in the art of storytelling.
