ABOUT ME

Abby was born in Princeton, New Jersey and was practically raised at her local dance studio. Abby fell in love with ballet at the age of five. She credits dance for igniting her passion for storytelling, performance and the arts. In middle school, Abby began making home movies with her best friend who lived across the street. She carried this hobby with her to Syracuse University where she eventually earned a B.S. in Television and Film at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.

 

At the age of 24, Abby has lived an extraordinary life, having lived abroad in Zurich, Switzerland and Singapore. Abby is very grateful for her worldly experiences and knows that this global awareness has informed her writing. She hopes to play an active role in changing Hollywood to inspire diverse narratives and global stories.

 

Abby was diagnosed with anorexia at age 20, and she continues to struggle with an eating disorder. Abby uses her filmmaking to raise awareness about this pervasive, cultural struggle which affects both men and women of all ages. Her senior thesis, Emancipated, is a 20-minute documentary which educates audiences about eating disorders and tells the stories of brave victims who struggle with E.D.s of many kinds. She hopes to also use her voice to advocate for more body inclusivity in television and media.

 

Abby loves writing and has known since 3rd grade English class that she wanted to have a hand in creating fictional stories.
