In September, 2014 after attending the Lady Filmmakers Film Festival here in LA, I caught the filmmaking bug and decided this was the next chapter in my journey as a writer and artist. I love to create and I wanted to take my writing to the next level, and screenwriting seemed the next logical step, especially living in Los Angeles.
In October, 2014 I joined the social media platform, Stage32 where I connected with other writers and individuals in the film industry. I felt as though I was beginning a new school, making new friends and learning new subjects. I learned about loglines and treatments, casting actors and scouting locations. I loved every moment and was excited about where this new path would lead me.
I began attending every networking event I could find, every film festival and panel discussion. I was eager to learn and my creative juices began flowing in ways I had never experienced with my writing of books. I soon learned that not only did I want to write scripts, I wanted to learn everything I could about filmmaking. I wanted to direct and produce. I began asking LOTS of questions and taking everything in.
In 2018 I decided to launch TOWER 15 PRODUCTIONS, a company that focuses on creating documentary and narrative social impact films, and supporting female filmmakers across the globe through education and resources.
Continue to check back as I have a number of film projects currently in the works. I'm excited about what I'm creating and can't wait to share it with the world.
