About

As a kid my sisters and I recorded fake radio segments on my beloved karaoke machine. In high school I was the nerd who spent most of her time in the yearbook office. I used to fall silent when the topic of hobbies came up because mine were (and still are) watching sitcoms, rapping The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song, and reading the intellectual literature of Chelsea Handler.

Now, I’m proud to admit my hobbies and interests. I know I am still young, but I am old enough to know what I love and that is writing and creating content. I am a writer and I want to continue doing this as a career in media and entertainment.

Signature Senior Project

"A Series of Events That May or May Not Be Related" is a video series composed for a final senior project as an undergraduate student at Drury University. This video series explores life situations and human interaction of three roommates through satire in sketch comedy format. For the completion of this project I created a charter proposal, wrote the scripts, cast characters, filmed, directed, and edited all the videos. I held a pre-screening event to survey the target audience's liking of the material. This project gave me the opportunity to incorporate both my Writing and Multimedia Production majors in one project to explore a future career in comedy writing and the entertainment industry.
