Reel Mama

I have always been a dreamer and doer. I started my professional career attending film school at Boston University, where I was able to spread my creative wings. I made several short films, taught filmmaking, and became a freelance writer in the process. Becoming a parent changed my life and took me in a new creative direction. I founded lifestyle blog to offer thoughtful, creative content celebrating the best in parenting, family entertainment, and fabulous products that enrich quality of life for families like my own. My goal is to help parents and kids make the most of their together time and to offer fun and valuable stuff for moms too!
