Jessica has always been true to her heart…as well as to her sense of humor. She loves creative, honest expressions of all kinds and genres, but has always had a special place in her heart for comedy. Since she was a young girl Jessica has always had an interest in writing, directing, and acting. She went to NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts where she studied acting and directing for theater. She then went to the Columbia Grad Film program, where she wrote, directed, and produced a strong body of film and TV projects. Although acting has not been her primary focus the last few years, she still has a deep love for acting as well as improv. Since graduating from Columbia she’s divided her time between writing, directing, and casting for film, TV, webseries, commercials, and music videos (as both a writer and director for hire and on her own projects). Recently one of the webseries she is a staff writer for has won critical acclaim, as well as been picked up by a major TV network. Other career highlights include Semifinals in the Sundance Writers Lab, a Student Academy nomination, an Audience Choice Award in the Columbia Film Festivals, and an award in the New York TV Festival (NYTVF). She is always on the lookout for interesting work she can bring her experience and unique sensibility to.
