As an intern, I have been contributing weekly reviews to FF2’s site The Hot Pink Pen since early 2016. I love being able to support female artists in such a consistent way, and it’s an endless treat to get to watch and write about movies for my job. Now I’m thrilled to be taking on the role of Contributing Editor!
I recently graduated from Columbia University, where I studied English and history. While at Columbia, I’ve written plays and had readings for Columbia’s student-written theatre company Nomads, edited the blog for Columbia’s film journal Double Exposure, and worked on film crews and participated in workshops at Columbia University Film Productions. I spent junior year abroad at Cambridge University, where I got to experience their strange and special tutorial system and Cambridge’s many opportunities for student playwrights to see their work produced. I had more than a few chances to explore the UK, too.
Some favorite reviews for The Hot Pink Pen are Sweet Bean, The Little Prince, L’Attesa, I Don’t Belong Anywhere, and two films with a focus on poet Elizabeth Bishop.
