I’m a head editor at a startup production company, a comedy development intern, and a production intern (all at the same time) with over five years of experience in telling stories through film, photo, and writing. I have worked in each of these disciplines at several capacities, such as starting my own photo firm, producing several short films, and writing scripts (drama, comedy, thriller) for feature and TV miniseries lengths. I also have hands-on experience in working as a production assistant. I interned at Cannes Film Festival last year for a production company and helped create promotional material for empowering women in film that received over three million views. I’m currently interning at NorthSouth Productions as a Comedy Development Intern, making shows like Impractical Jokers come to life in the development process. I’m also a Production Intern at Greenpoint Pictures, the company behind many of the best commercials you’ve seen on TV or online. I have been published in numerous respected New York University publications for my writing in prose, and I recently pitched an original comedy short film and received funding for production from the Gallatin Film Alliance at NYU.I’m explosively creative and have no regard for comfort in storytelling — my specialty is informed risk-taking in creative development. I take the theory behind storytelling seriously, but I always deliver with an innovative, original approach that is practical and executable. Working with people is my ultimate passion, and I see each person as someone who can teach me something. I’m eager to learn things I don’t know yet so I can better the the creative environment around us. So, in a grand conclusion: I like to create things and tell stories with them.
