Director Statement:

Filmmaking is my passion and I enjoyed the entire process of creating Here’s Jane. From conception of the idea, to writing the script and casting the roles, to the actual process of filming. I grew up watching “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson in my Grandparents living room and knew from a very young age that I wanted to be involved in the entertainment industry making people laugh. I began my career as an Actress playing a number of different roles, but always held a divine interest for comedy. I quickly realized that comedic roles for women were not easy to come by, so I decided to write something for myself and

In 2014, I created Here’s Jane. I always knew that I would end up Directing one day, with my creative eye and experience as a Producer, so when I finished writing Here’s Jane, I knew that I was the best person to Direct it. Being my first Directorial project, as well as playing the lead character, I knew I would need another set of eyes while I was in front of the camera. So, I asked my good friend Bobby Hewitt to help me Co-Direct. Bobby and I have been friends for many years and have worked on a few projects together, making me confident that he would be the perfect fit to help carry out my creative vision. With his years of experience as a Director of Photography, Here’s Jane turned out better than I had envisioned.
