She is currently VP, Originals, for First Look Media’s Topic, where she develops and oversees a diverse slate of scripted and unscripted original programming for the streaming service. She is especially interested in auteur-driven works from creators with a provocative, socially conscious point of view, and a talent for suspenseful story construction.

She holds a Peabody Award for her role as producer on the ABC News long-form documentary series Hopkins, a Daytime Emmy Award for her work on MTV’s MADE, and a Webby Award for her film The Internet Must Go. She is normally based in Brooklyn with her husband Eli and their two kids, but they’re currently sheltering in place in Maine where it seems they’ll be for the foreseeable future. (Wear your masks!)
