@with2ts: Why did you decide to get into

@with2ts: Why did you decide to get into this industry? I don’t know that I did. When I was a kid I wanted to be an actor. I wanted to be on stage and dance and sing and have everyone look at me. And as I got older I knew that I loved TV and I loved watching movies. I kind of do nothing but. When we got Netflix, my family didn’t see me ever again. I’m obsessed. So I knew I wanted to be a part of that but because I grew up so far away from the industry there was no option of, “I want to be a development exec,” or “I want to write for TV.” It felt like if you wanted to be in TV, you had to be on TV. So I went to school for theatre and acted all through college and I graduated and worked part time for awhile trying to act. And I realized very quickly that I was having more fun at my part time job at a management/production company than I was having going to auditions. So I had to deal with that feeling of, “I don’t love this anymore” and then ended up with an amazing opportunity working with Shelley [Zimmerman at AwesomenessTV] and lucked my way into the job that I think that I wanted to begin with. It was never, “I want to be this when I grow up,” It was more, “I’m here now and I’m very happy.” So while it’s exciting but it wasn’t super intentional. I cannot take any credit for it. #thereelwomen #girlboss #women #womenoflight #picoftheday #photooftheday #female #love #film #television #TV #media #art #FilmEquality #womeninfilm #femalefilmmakers #empoweringwomen #womenempower #betterhollywood #womendirect #girl #movies #movielover #create #me #happy #ladyboss #bosslady #girlgang #goals http://ow.ly/i/kqZeS
