Hillary is a writer, director, and producer based in NYC. She seeks humor in the everyday, and has a penchant for stories that explore the differences between who we are and the way we present ourselves to the world. Her comedic web series, Keep Me Posted, is a biting look at the impact of texting and social media on our closest relationships. Refinery 29 called it “hilariously accurate,” and the series earned Hillary a spot in Filmshop’s Breakthrough Series, where she was featured in conversation with director Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man, (500) Days of Summer). Hillary’s short film, The Cheeseburger, has been shared by multiple popular food bloggers, and is currently playing at festivals across the country.
Hillary’s background is in television development—she previously worked at the Emmy-winning production company, Lion Television, developing unscripted series for national cable networks like TLC, AMC, and A&E. She has also produced branded videos for clients including 1000heads, MME, Arm Technology, UN Environment, and Palmer’s, and served as Producer, Director, and Assistant Director on a variety of short films.
Hillary's personal essays have been published both online and in print, most recently in McSweeney's Internet Tendency and Eating Well magazine. You can find some of her earlier work on late night reruns of Cash Cab, for which she worked as a writer and researcher.
Hillary can also be seen in an uncredited cameo in the Jeremy Lin documentary, Linsanity. In college, she spent her time dodging flying athletes and projectiles, risking bodily harm in the name of sports photography, and her photos have been published in National Geographic and Sports Illustrated.
