LESSONS LEARNED. As 2015 comes to a close, let’s think about the things that happened and learn what we can from the successes and the failures. Happy New Year, my lovelies. You and I are going to make 2016 magical!

FAMILY. Man, that’s a loaded word right there, isn’t it? Some of us are born with family who we love and who love us. Some of us are closer to those with whom we purposefully surround ourselves. Some of us are lucky enough to have both biological family and friends who have become family. And […]

CAUTIOUSLY OPTIMISTIC. I know, I sound all jaded and angsty when I say that you shouldn’t just run into a situation with your entire self fully invested and your whole soul poured into it. Here’s the thing, though: things fall apart all the time, sometimes before they get started, sometimes in the middle of things, sometimes […]

DISTANCING LANGUAGE. It’s a thing I use to gently let people down when they’re obviously pushing for something I’m not into. Sometimes it’s too hard or scary to directly tell a suitor that you’re not interested – maybe he or she is a friend, maybe he or she is part of your professional circle, etc. […]

ART! It is becoming exceedingly difficult to make money as an independent filmmaker and content creator. Major studios make movies with nine-digit budgets.

RESPECT. Here’s the thing: I am totally not cool with not being taken seriously by others simply because I happen to be a woman. This has been bothering me a lot lately, and I think we needed a reminder that this issue hasn’t gone away just because now we have Jessica Jones. Truthfully, I’m a […]

SISTERHOOD. I’ve been given the opportunity to become friends with some incredible people, but especially the fantastic, intelligent, talented women in my life. These women have taught me how to put on eyeliner, how to eat Korean BBQ, how to…be friends with girls. This podcast is my love letter to all of you amazing women […]

STAY IN YOUR LANE. Or, at least, learn how to do the thing you’re trying to get hired to do instead of the thing you actually do. Listen, we all have dreams. I dream of making a film that gets critical acclaim, is screened numerous times per day in multiplexes around the world, makes tons […]
