ABOUT ME

I have had a crazy, varied career.  I have been a college professor.  I've gotten to be part of a great project that changed the economy of an entire state.  I have worked in television and animation.  I have made movies.  I've trudged metaphorically through some pretty horrible darkness.  I watched my hometown drown in Hurricane Katrina.  I suffered three years of nightmares that led to a difficult and painful Jungian analysis, (that led me to move back to California, and eventually become a therapist).  I have written books, and conducted social science research.  I have run a phenomenally successful animation festival, and taught deaf kids how to do animation.  I have held executive positions in studios, and been a waitress at the Hard Rock Cafe.  I have won awards like "Governor's Technology Leader of the Year" and been part of Emmy Award winning teams for spectacular television.  The through line for all of these is that I like big challenges, and I dedicate myself completely to succeed at whatever is in front of me.

I'm dedicated to sharing the secret to female driven stories.
