ScreenMom is a mother to elementary school-age boy/girl twins and a story analyst at a major motion picture studio, where she has worked in that capacity for more than a decade. She was also a development executive, taught movie development classes at UCLA Extension and the American Film Institute’s extension program, and served as a teaching artist in Los Angeles public schools with Playwright’s Project.
Her parents instilled in her a love of movie classics over many matinees at a revival house on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, a few blocks from where she grew up. Her high school graduation present was being escorted by her dad to Fred Astaire’s American Film Institute Life Achievement Award dinner — still the most glamorous event she’s ever attended (thanks Dad for scoring the tickets!). She continued to feed her passion for great movies in college, where she served as president of her university’s film society. She enjoys a regular Friday movie night at home with the kids, and is happy their tastes run the gamut from 1938’s THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD to DESPICABLE ME (2010).
ScreenMom is a member of Local 700 Story Analysts/Motion Picture Editors Guild and the Writers Guild of America, as well as her local parents of multiples club.
