Do I Sound Professional?
Let's Get Personal
I grew up a Hasidic Jew in Miami Beach FL, the only daughter of a South African father and a mother descended from Holocaust survivors, alongside three genius brothers.
I had little exposure to film or TV, but fell in love with both anyway. My DIY education came in the olden days of Netflix DVDs, swooning over Hal Ashby, Mike Leigh, and Amy Heckerling.
I moved to LA without friends, family, or a clue, and directed myself in a feature that doubled as an effort to heal from my biological mom's suicide. (Spoiler alert: I didn’t.)
I’m on a lifelong mission to untangle my shit: depression, addiction, religion, internalized misogyny, shame, ADHD, my queerness, and my delightful personality that has somehow alienated lots of people. It’s fun!
