I was abused at a young age - even before I had the words to describe and make sense of what was happening to me. It wasn’t until I saw the ways in which I would reflect that trauma in my own work.
I was a young, successful, and decorated producer in Hollywood, working with big-league players from Universal to Lionsgate. I fought tooth and nail to climb up the ladder and establish myself as a trustworthy and determined young producer.
While huge companies, infamous directors, and household name celebrities trusted me, I didn’t implicitly trust myself. This was when I realized that success at the cost of me will ultimately lead to my demise.
