Hey, I'm Rachel!

Los Angeles, California

I'm an accomplished television director who loves the short form film.  I've directed over 60 hours of dramatic television, movies and episodes.  I was chair of the DGA Women's Steering Committee, I've taught directing in the MFA program at USC, and have won multiple awards and grants for my prior short films.  I'm currently in active development on FAIR FIGHT, a feature film about Fair Pay activist Lilly Ledbetter, and am a vocal advocate regarding employment equity for women directors in Hollywood.
