Some call me Ginny. I have no preference. 

I have lived in Los Angeles about three years, depending on the time elapsed between my writing and you reading. Finally settled near MacArthur Park, I spend my days writing, editing for myself and others, amidst the ebbs and flows of acting work, studying with Master Coach Martha Gehman and the occasional trek or horseback ride. I'd say I stay out of trouble, but the honest statement is I try to stay out of trouble. Truly. I do. 

I am pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing through NYU GSAS low residency Writer's Workshop in Paris. I'll allow you (and myself) a moment to catch breath.

I received my BA from the NYU Gallatin School of Individualized study. My senior colloquium was a comparison of Boleslavsky and Stanislavsky Method Acting with Locke and Hume's Empiricism, particularly in the congruencies of sensory stimuli and experience. 

Prior to transferring into NYU, I read Philosophy at the University of Bristol in England for a year upon completing GCSE's and A-Levels at Bedales School, an hour's train ride south of London. I lived in England as a student from the age of 14-19. No, I didn't have family there. Why, you ask? Why not?

During my undergrad years, I interned for the United States Senate in D.C. (2012), The Colbert Report Final Season (2014) and the Advance Team at City Hall, the Office of the Mayor (2015).

In LA, I interned for Animals Magazine (2017) and have been aide to many painting, photography, and film projects. I am currently trying my hand at screenplay, a rather different animal to academic, philosophical, fiction and journal writing. 

Earlier...

I was born in Louisiana.  My dad is a bonafide, red blooded southerner. My mom was born in DC and grew up in a diplomatic foreign service family primarily based in South East Asia. It was interesting.

I grew up primarily in DC, with stints in Virginia, Maryland and Rhode Island. My teenage years were spent with perpetually muddy shoes, running around the countryside of Southern England. Does that essentially bring us up to speed?
