Ive been working professionally in animation for ten years. Its a medium I love, but a medium I hadnt originally set out to apart of. It all started when I graduated college. With a mountain of student loan debt, I couldnt afford to pay actors and location fees, so I improvised and started making stop-motion in my basement. I had no professional training, but it was a way to make my stories come to life on a budget. Ten years later
Ive worked on shows such as, ROBOT CHICKEN, WBs MAD, and Adult Swims FRANKENHOLE. In 2015 I won an Emmy for my work on AMAZONs TUMBLE LEAF. I recently wrapped as the Head of Story on Warner Bros LEGO BATMAN movie, set to be released FEB 2017!
Though animation remains the majority of my professional experience, in 2010 I shifted into live-action writing and directing with my personal projects. In 2011 I was selected for AFIs Directing Workshop for Women. The experience inspired me to keep creating, and since then Ive directed many shorts. My film, HOW TO BE A FEMALE DIRECTOR, gained me recognition from Independences Magazine as, 2012s Top Ten Filmmakers to look for.
My background in animation and my love for live-action has given me a unique tone and an eclectic visual sense of story telling.
