My love of developing stories began at an early age when I made pictures books to share with my siblings. As a grown up, I developed stories in the TV and film industry where I worked for 12 years. Beginning as a researcher at Saturday Night Live, I ended my NYC years as a development and production executive at New Line Cinema (Exec. Producer: lovejones and Hedwig and the Angry Inch). Before leaving, I earned an ME in Early Childhood Education and a Montessori teaching certificate at NYU. I moved to RI where I taught Montessori (3-6 year olds) for 10 years and studied at RISD at night. I work and play in Providence, RI where I live with my husband, 2 sons and a wacky Chihuahua mix named Buttercup.
