Born and raised in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, I studied business at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania where I played NCAA D1 soccer for the Quakers. After my sophomore year, I transferred to the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor and earned my B.A. in Screen Arts & Cultures with a concentration in screenwriting and minored in writing.

During my undergraduate education, I also took courses at the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts and interned in development for Will Smith & Jada Pinkett-Smith's production company, Overbrook Entertainment, and in programming for Detroit's NBC affiliate. Upon graduation, I worked on documentaries both for Detroit Public TV and private clients.

Now, I'm living in Los Angeles, where I'm adapting novels, like Sparrow Migrations, and promoting my hour-long drama pilot, Recovering, an official selection of the REEL Recovery Film Fest and Studio City International Film Fest, and a finalist in the Moondance International Film Fest.

As a writer/creator across mediums, I enjoy telling stories of recovery from (all-too-often) stigmatized mental and behavioral health disorders, as well as fusing original music with projects. I'm currently in pre-production on a music video for a track off my debut album (on iTunes and Spotify).
