A LITTLE ABOUT YOU AND THE CRAFT:

Filmmaking Specialty: Writer/Producer
# Years Experience: 5+
A little about your journey as a filmmaker: I fell into screenwriting thanks to a small Theatre course assignment at College of Charleston. It was love at first rewrite, but I didn’t truly pursue a career in writing until I moved to New York a couple of years later. Shortly after moving, I met with the Creative Directors at MTV On-Air Promos, and high-fived a million angels for helping me stumble upon my dream job. After a few years of writing and producing for MTV and freelancing for a boutique production company, I decided it was time to bring my creative experiences back to my hometown of Charlotte. That, and I was tired of scraping the bottom of a peanut butter jar for dinner every night. The right opportunity came at the right time with Wray Ward, and now I eat peanut butter from the jar by choice.

FILMS HAVE MADE PEOPLE LARGER THAN LIFE… YOUR THOUGHTS?

Your favorite famous person and why their influence improves our world: Too many to name – Tina Fey. Amy Poehler. Amy Shumer. Kristen Wiig. There are so many brilliant female comedy writers out there bulldozing the concept of “funny for a girl.” They use the sometimes ugly truth of being a woman to illuminate the other side of that experience, which has a beauty and sensitivity no frat pack will ever have.

 

JUST FOR FUN

The next exciting thing. Participating in the Charlotte 48-Hour Film Festival with fellow Wray Ward-ians. They’re a lean, mean bunch of weirdos with more energy than 48 hours can handle, so I’m beyond excited to stretch our collective imagination.
The last film you watched before you knew you wanted to make films? Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) by Albert Lamorisse. I loved the escapism of a child’s gray reality transformed by the color of fantasy. It’s the perfect combination of joy and sadness, of heart-swelling imagination and gut-wrenching nostalgia. Evoking that feeling is still my ultimate goal as a writer.
Who are the best filmmakers alive? Noah Baumbach and Wes Anderson. They’ve both mastered the hilarity of melancholy.
