RÉSUMÉ


A recent MFA graduate whose first project outside of the Actors Studio Drama School was creating and producing the web series Solid 8. Supervised an Indiegogo campaign for Solid 8 that raised $15,000 and allocated the funds from pre-production though festival submissions without going over budget. Screened the pilot for Solid 8 at three festivals in 2016 and earned two awards nominations while making meaningful connections with both the festival organizers and the artists.
