Thanks for making your way to my little corner of cyberspaceland.
Not sure what brought you here – my acting work, print/on camera journalism, new media production projects or just random Googling – but I’m glad you made it!
A little about me...
I’m a classically trained actress and have appeared in numerous theater productions in the L.A. area, as well as in comedy shows such as MORTIFIED!, SHOW & TELL (UCB) and WHAT I LIKE ABOUT JEW. On-screen appearances include SEVENTH HEAVEN, CHARMED and STAR TREK: FIRST CONTACT (yes, I have a playing card, much to my Trekkie father`s delight). I also love me some internets, and can be seen in the web series BACK ON TOPPS and THE SHAMAN. For my full resume and clips from some of my TV work, click here. For more on my theater company, The Antaeus Company, click here.
I’m an on-camera host, something that feeds my eternal curiosity, as well as my appetite for writing & producing. Red carpets, sit down interviews, studio pieces – I love it all! I especially enjoy covering tech and entertainment news and events. Adventures include writing and hosting 30 episodes of THE SPOTLIGHT, a lighthearted tech news show for consumer tech site Tom’sGuide.com; correspondent work for PBS's WIRED SCIENCE; Marvel.com's red carpet coverage and AT THE FEST (Webby honoree), which featured interviews with independent film directors, writers and talent.
As a print journalist, I tend to focus on entertainment, science and technology, and have been published in VARIETY, FILMMAKER and THE INDEPENDENT. Online outlets include tubefilter.tv, indieWire, and ModernTonic.com. I took a deep dive into the the world of non-fiction film when serving as Associate Editor of the IDA's DOCUMENTARY magazine, writing stories about everything from director/subject relationships to filmmaker profiles to distribution how to's. In my spare time, I blog about science and culture at Science Lush.
I'm a frequent speaker and moderator on industry panels focusing on technology, new media and the entertainment industry, including events hosted by Digital Hollywood; NATPE's LATVFest; the Writers Guild of America, West; the Consumer Electronics Show (CES); Social Media Week; the Northwestern University Entertainment Alliance; the Organization of Black Screenwriters; LA WebFest; the Jackson Hole Tech Symposium; and Science Online.
I love working on other people's projects as well as my own. I was an interactive producer with entertainment marketing firm Crew Creative, where I worked on projects for clients such as Discovery Channel, Overture Films, Picture People, iklipz.com and Warner Independent Pictures. I also work as a freelance field producer for companies such as IFC News and Barnes and Noble, shooting everything from event coverage to man-on-the-street pieces.
My grassroots environmental campaign, CHANGE THE MARGINS, focuses on making the world a bit more eco-friendly, one piece of paper at a time. It's been featured on NPR and in a variety of new publications and periodicals. For more, see www.changethemargins.com.
