I wrote CLUB RAT$ with my friend Danene Montella. We started writing the screenplay about a year ago which amazes me because it feels like it happened so fast. We had a lot of fun writing together. We always knew that we had a good story moment when we were on the floor laughing uncontrollably, which happened more times than you’d think! Read more>>

Cari Hah

My first experience in a bar was working as a cocktail waitress in a busy high volume club when I was 21. My managers stuck me behind the bar because security was tired of having to intervene when customers would try to pick me up. I just did it for fun and it was such great money for basically having a good time. Read more>>

I’ve been an artist virtually all my life. I never seriously considered any other path or career. I began as an illustrator, creating images for magazines, newspapers and book publishers.

Keltie Knight

When we started our podcast there really were only a few women centric shows out there- the landscape was mostly sports and bro-talk. It was hard to explain what we were doing to publicists and celebrities because no one was actually doing it yet. That was a challenge. Read more>>

Jordan Passman

When I started Score a Score in 2010, I set out to simplify the collaboration between producers in need of original music and the composers who create it. With nowhere else to go, directors were turning to Craigslist to find musicians and soundtracks for their projects. That void inspired a dedicated marketplace just for this community. Read more>>

Kelly-Jo Potts

Five years ago I begrudgingly moved to Los Angeles (Venice to be exact) for work and I never thought it would truly feel like home. Having grown up in the Bay Area and lived in Europe, there’s truly a love/hate with this city before one discovers just how great it really is. Read more>>
