After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts with a degree in theatre, she found a knack for using video as a visual tool to supplement live performance, which led to a new career. Having spent the past 10 years in NYC, she has produced videos for publications such as Real Simple magazine and Food52, working with numerous clients including Panera Bread, Klondike, Smirnoff USA, Silvercar, and Home Depot.
