About Me

I'm a life-long resident of New Jersey - born and raised in Bergen County, I lived in Jersey City for many years.  I now live in Ocean County with my husband, Carlo Fiorletta, and our cats.


I attended Brown University in Providence, RI and graduated from the New School in Manhattan with a degree in Media Studies and Film and a concentration in screenwriting.

I've written and produced two indie features: Surviving Family and DETOURS. You can read more about them HERE.  Both movies have won plaudits from actors, directors, the casting director, and critics for featuring complex and believable characters.

If you frequent the popular filmmaking forum IndieTalk, you'll see me often as I'm a volunteer moderator.


I've also written numerous plays that have been produced on the NYC stage.

You can check me out on IMDb here and on LinkedIn here.
