I began my career as an agent’s assistant at ICM Partners, one of the largest talent agencies in the world, in the Motion Picture Literary department. I was fortunate to work with agents who were wonderful mentors and had equally wonderful clients who believed in me as much as I believed in them.
One of these relationships led to a position with Disney TV Animation, Original Series Development where I worked as part of a team that helped guide show creators from idea stage to a fully realized television pilot with a viable chance for pick-up to series.
I use the storytelling skills I honed in Hollywood to help writers of fiction and narrative non-fiction produce the best possible versions of their stories, whether those stories take the form of an article, book, short story, or screenplay.
I also help businesses and organizations articulate their visions by providing both copywriting and copyediting services for marketing materials and websites, and copyediting for reports.
I have a BA in Religious Studies from Principia College and a certificate in Professional Editing from UC Berkeley. I have also been published in the Los Angeles Times.
