Welcome to Pretzel Pictures!

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love dogs, and Pretzel Pictures is in honor of Pretzel, a Boxador, who was a wonderful companion for twelve and a half years.

Like any good dog, I have traveled down many paths, collecting treasures – mine in the form of a comprehensive list of experiences and skills.

I possess a keen interest in history, particularly women’s history, and lending voice to their stories, as well contemporary social justice concerns is what gets me up in the morning!

Being well-versed in both the creative and storytelling aspects of film making, as well as logistics and budgets, I now produce, script, and direct award winning documentaries for PBS, as well as a variety of projects in the commercial arena.

Arcadia Publishing has published 3 books I authored/co-authored in the history genre, and I am actively engaged in writing a time management book for creatives, as well as some fiction. More soon!

And always~

Keep Digging Deeper!
