LA Opera

Content Specialist

At LA Opera, I have the privilege of telling the company's story. I created and now write for and edit the company blog, while also writing articles for the season's many programs and producing videos that showcase what an opera company has to offer the city of Los Angeles. It's a dream job, where I utilize my film and writing skills, while falling in love with the world of opera.

Career

The Metropolitan Opera

Sales Associate

In December 2014, I made a career change. I wanted to lead a more creative life and so I began working part-time at The Metropolitan Opera Gift Shop. What began as a side-gig changed my entire life. I found myself in opera, while providing excellent customer service to opera guests and patrons. The interpersonal skills and opera knowledge I learned while working at The Shop led me to pursue a career in arts admin that landed me at LA Opera.

Current Marketing

Assistant Account Executive

Working at Current was the best crash course in PR that no education can buy. I conducted media outreach and provided account support for five clients in the travel and consumer sectors (including the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, The Setai, Miami Beach, and Samsung Home Appliances) and pitched new business.

A Day That Made Me Smile: Receiving a handwritten thank you note from our Setai client for securing 14 editorial appointments with top travel and beauty publications, such as Vogue, Travel + Leisure, and Conde Nast Traveler.

The Weinstein Company

Digital Marketing Intern

Not many people can say that they've worked for one of their favorite companies, but I can. I grew up on Miramax and later Weinstein Company classics (The English Patient, anyone?). It was a pleasure to assist the marketing team, particularly with social media campaigns for such films as My Week with Marilyn, The Artist, and Django Unchained.

Betsey Johnson

Public Relations Intern

Working for Betsey Johnson was my first foray into the world of PR. I acted as a keeper of Betsey Johnson history, archiving press materials related to the brand and its creator. I also assisted in preparations for the Fall 2011/Winter 2012 fashion show and served as on the ground staff at Lincoln Center during Fashion Week.

I am a renaissance woman. Watch me multi-task and talk to you about a variety of subjects.

My dream job is to be a writer/director/ actor (the whole "trifecta") and place women at the center of my films.

Master of Arts (MA), Film Studies

What could be better than a year in London studying the art of film? Perhaps, a dissertation tracking the trends in Post 9/11 US-Middle East Foreign Policy in Hollywood Cinema.
