Q + A

What are you currently working on?

This summer has been intense juggling three features - NIX (which I produced on) is released in September, followed by Beyond the Neon in October. Love at First Spite finished shooting and is officially in post-prod.

With some of that clearing off my plate, I'm digging into some acting work- trying new techniques, refreshing my skillsets, etc. I'm also diving back into some scripts I've had cooking for a while.

What's your favorite genre to work on?

MARISA: I used to only want to do comedy, but personal tragedy has sparked a need for emotional roles. I want to try all the things!

What are your favorite characters to play?

I like a messy, sarcastic character. They have the best secrets.

What would some dream jobs be?

I'm very interested in the future of media and new ways of storytelling (VR? Choose-your-own-adventure?)

Who would you love to work with?

Paul Feig, Mindy Kaling, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Snoop Dogg.

Thoughts for 2022?

My mantra this year is "Only More" - More water, more creating, more laughs, more adventure… lets do it!​​​
