“Sometimes I do relate to Rey from Star Wars because I too am a survivor toughened by life on a harsh desert planet.”
One time Melissa was almost eaten by a bear while exploring an old mine alone in Park City, Utah. True story. But that experience hasn’t deterred her from a love of exploration. Instead, she sees life as one big quest to discover herself and/or the best flight of beers around. Essentially, she’s a textbook Sagittarius and damn proud of it.
She graduated from Elon University with a degree in Cinema and Television Arts, and wants to eventually work as an Assistant Director. In the meantime, she loves soaking up any and all knowledge about the production world.
Her main philosophy in life is to drink more water, and she thinks we should all normalize wearing hydrapacks around town. If only to always be prepared to pour one out for Vine, which met its end too soon.
