As a writer, Jamie began her career when she won the Outstanding Achievement in Screenwriting at NYU’s film program. Soon after, she wrote a screenplay for hire for Universal Studios. Her writing career has grown to include copywriting, prose and journalism. And her latest screenplay, Bait, was chosen for the NYWIFT Script to Preproduction Lab. The script was also a finalist for the prestigious Austin Film Festival Screenwriting Competition. Out of 3667 screenplay submissions for the feature drama category, as a finalist Bait was in the top six.
Her career as a director and producer started alongside her screenwriting work. At NYU she directed and produced two award-winning short films. Since then she has continued to make shorts, commercials, web content, docu-series and a feature documentary. She was also chosen for the Samsung VR Lab where she wrote, directed and produced a narrative VR horror film, half shot in 360 video, half created in the Unity3D gaming engine.
Jamie returned to NYU to attend the masters program at NYU ITP where she started her work as a technologist. At ITP she focused her projects on integrating narrative with technology and studied programming, physical computing, game design, experience design, UX design, product design and machine learning. Her professional work as a technologist encompasses projects ranging from wearable tech for Strata — a biometric feedback meditation experience in VR — to building two large lighting installations for The Mill’s one-day art exhibition at AICP 2017 entitled, “Move Me”. Her technology work includes projects for Ford and Warner Brothers.
