What drew you to the entertainment industry?
I think it was an inevitable outcome for me. I was always into theatre and writing, and I realized I could combine those two loves when it came time to choose where I'd like to spend the next phase of my education.
What's your favorite part about working with writers?
My favorite thing to do is dissecting a script because we get to nerd out for however long our chat lasts.
What gets you most excited about a writer's pitch?
Pitches are great because I can see the physical writer and their enthusiasm for their work.
What's one bit of advice that helps you the most in this industry?
I don't really know if anyone one person has said this to me, but I always use "LA is what you make it."
What's your favorite non-industry-related hobby or activity?
Sleeping. It's both a great hobby and activity!
