    About me

    I am an independent film producer in New York who is seeking to expand my experience with feature films and tv series. I produced Peter Azen's first feature film, Cacaya, an Official Selection of the Montreal World Film Festival 2017 and Rio de Janeiro's Festival Ecrã 2018, and I was an Executive Producer on Natasha Kermani's sci-fi feature film, Imitation Girl, which premiered at Cinequest Film & VR Festival 2017, before screening at the Dances With Films Festival in Hollywood, Fright Fest in London, and being nominated by the Leonardo Da Vinci Society for Best Film and Best Acting Performance Female at the Milan International Film Festival in the same year. Imitation Girl is currently being distributed by Epic Film Group’s Dread Presents label and has closed a vinyl record deal with UK-based Burning Witches Records. I also produced Bryan Powers's short film, Time is the Longest Distance, which has screened at 26 U.S. and European film festivals since premiering in April 2017. Most recently, I produced The Invaders, a short film written and directed by Mateo Márquez, which premiered in April 2018 at the Vail Film Festival, and has to-date been an Official Selection of 30 film festivals in seven countries, including Woods Hole Film Festival, Fantasia International Film Festival, and the British Film Institute’s London Film Festival. Previously, I had worked as a production assistant on the feature films, Loserville and Landing Up.

    Additional Information

    A native of Germany, I worked in sales and marketing for luxury hotels in Europe, as well as in network development for OgilvyOne worldwide in New York. I obtained a BBA in Marketing with a concentration in International Advertising from Pace University, from which I graduated Summa Cum Laude. I am a co-founder of Cup of Joe Film, and a member of New York Women in Film and Television (NYWIFT) and SAG-Aftra. In addition, I support the Brooklyn Film Festival as a marketing and industry co-ordinator.
