Copywriter and creative

Short films

Before I committed to copywriting for good, I dabbled in film production – helping to make three award-winning short films in collaboration with my friends at BarkingMAD Productions. Aside from being the directors’ right-hand woman, I made sure all cast and crew were fed, helped dress our leading ladies, and even made some bull horns out of bananas... It’s a long story.

Naturally, I wrote all our press releases, casting calls, and promo materials too.
