Short Bio

As a Casting Director in nonfiction TV, I find and share stories about people from all walks of life to fit within — and to shape — a broader story. I’ve run large teams on 190+ TV episodes — docuseries, competitions, game shows — working in development, on pilots and on some of the longest-running series on TV (Netflix, ABC, TBS, Food Network, MTV, Discovery, E!, Science...) I'm fascinated by human behavior — what it is from the past that defines someone's present — and how that moves society forward.

As the Head of Development and Production at Bright-Eyed Media, I work closely with agents, talent and network executives to ideate, cast and produce original documentary & unscripted formats — I sold my first series in 2017.

For a decade prior to my career in entertainment, I worked in marketing, branding and design in NYC. Restaurant clients included il Buco, Balthazar, Pastis, Pravda, Morandi, and others. I was also the publicist to Celebrity Psychic Judy Hoffman and Greenstone, an eco-friendly real estate developer in Brooklyn.

I'm a member of the Casting Society of America, the Television Academy and NY Women in Film & TV. I studied Psychology at The New School and Interior Space Planning at Parsons School of Design, I've traveled the globe extensively and was born and raised in NYC.
