Hey, I'm Eleanor!

I'm a writer, filmmaker and actress passionate about telling meaningful, timeless stories across diverse mediums. I firmly believe that the best stories help us not just understand ourselves, but give us the rare opportunity to experience the world from another person's point of view. I hope you'll join me in my journey.

About Me

Sylvia Plath once said “I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in my life. And I am horribly limited.” I think these words fantastically describe why stories have such a profound impact on our lives. Growing up in the suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I have memories of consuming the books, movies, TV, plays, and more that would shape my perspective.

I write about misfits, exploring familiar topics from a unique perspective. I've written and directed two short films, Eagle Rock (2019) and Time in a Bottle (2022). I created, wrote and hosted the first season of the podcast About A Girl (2020-). My debut novel, All Our Yesterdays, will also be released in 2024.

When I'm not writing, I love going for walks, spending time in nature, thrift shopping, visiting museums, listening to music, or just relaxing with a good book or movie while I'm burning my new favorite scented candle. I'm currently based in Los Angeles, California.
