I’m a graduate student in the Peter Stark Producing Program at the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California.
“The Film Scholar” was created as an outlet to explore all facets of the film industry, from narrative devices and explorations of common themes to musings on industry news and technology.
My love for movies began around the time I was cast in a small role in Sideways, for which I won a Screen Actors Guild Award. I got my start in writing as an English major at Harvard College, where I also worked as Manager and CEO of the Harvard Glee Club.
Prior to beginning film school, I was an Account Manager and Copywriter at glassCanopy, a full service San Francisco-based marketing agency that specializes in startups, technology, and financial services. As part of our company’s content marketing initiative, I wrote articles that pulled unique insights about marketing from pop culture and the world writ large. My duties also included managing web-based and printed creative, and managing and writing for several of our clients’ blogs, websites and collateral.
