I have worked in independent film for over 20 years. My career pretty much started with me volunteering at the Seattle International Film Festival and moving my way up to Director of Publicity and Promotions. That lead me to the Sundance Film Festival as the World Cinema and Documentary publicist which helped decide to move to Los Angeles to pursue a career in film publicity. I worked for Block Korenbrot PR for many years, working on all of Sony Pictures Classics films, it was there that I learned about awards campaigning. From there I went to PMK and then over to the distributor side at The Orchard. I am now at Magnolia Pictures and very proud of the films that I get to work on here. Some of my all time favorite projects include: AN EDUCATION, SEARCHING FOR SUGARMAN, LIFE ITSELF, RACHEL GETTING MARRIED, AMERICAN ANIMALS and THE FIGHT just to name a few.
