About Julie

As a kid in faraway upstate New York, I had very little access to any arts. My first great love was dance, and against all odds, because I started training late -- it loved me back. It was a wonderful twenty years. Even though I still occasionally get carded buying a bottle of wine, I’m clearly in my own personal Act II.

I have a great day job writing business-side materials for vintage variety house (theater) in. It’s a really lucky transition from the dance world. My limited-series pilot is inspired by my life in this Detroit theater, although it should definitely be understood as a painting and not a photograph. My current portfolio also includes a feature (in deep revisions) and two shorts that reflect on a personal preoccupation with the grotesque political and social divisions now prevalent among people everywhere, what’s causing it, and what we can do about it

I enjoy cracking people up randomly throughout the day, in addition to on a page. My goal is to work with people who are fun, funny, cool, kind, sharp, and committed to bring expressive ideas to life.
