Andrea is a television writer….and so much more. She’s also a rabble-rouser, New Yorker, Italian. My first impression of her was that she is a woman who lives “balls out.” Out loud. Wide awake. She feels all the feelings and tries to sort them out, while living with as much truth as she can muster. This is what makes an artist.
Some of her television credits include The Path, American Odyssey and Borgia. She has worked with Tom Fontana. She works on the WWP Writing Workshops for the Writer’s Guild Initiative. She did a lot of work with Occupy Wall Street. She is an activist, a teacher, a badass.
We talked about being at Juilliard and having an imposter syndrome, being fired by Phillip Seymour Hoffman and how that was great, gaining 40 pounds in impoverished Africa, then losing 100 in LA. And my new favorite phrase “the conspiracy of denial.”
I thought our talk was delicious and I hope you do too. **We did it with a lot of f-bombs, though. You’ve been warned.
