How did her journey begin, what was the path that got her to the point of being involved in digital media and film, and creation of all kinds of cool stuff?
“It was not a straight line,” she says.
It all started in high school, in college when she used to produce her own plays that she wrote and didn’t quite realize at the time that she was a producer. But now she can trace the seed.
It was in 2008 when she wanted to be a television writer, like a Sitcom writer. She was the finalist for the Disney program which was a program lot of people want to be in for screenwriting. It was at the same time she also realized that the writers themselves didn’t really have that much power.
