The entertainment bug bit Adrienne early, and as a child, she liked watching a variety of TV programs, and especially loved going to the movies.
Adrienne’s first role as an actress was in the sixth grade when she landed the lead role of Willy Wonka in her school’s production of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”
Through high school and college, Adrienne developed her skills as a writer and actress, but her media career didn’t begin in earnest until she arrived in the unlikely country of Japan, where she worked as a translator and Coordinator of International Relations for the Japanese Board of Education. During her two years in this position, Adrienne wrote for, produced, and co-hosted a local television show geared towards educating Japanese people about American culture.
Her experience in Japan propelled Adrienne to pursue an MBA in Media & Entertainment from Columbia Business School. On the heels of earning her degree, Adrienne joined the corporate world and worked as an internal consultant for media entities such as IFC Films, AMC, and IFC Entertainment.
As an independent producer, Adrienne helped develop the film, “The Harimaya Bridge,” starring Danny Glover, which was theatrically released in 2009. More recently, Adrienne’s original screenplay, “The End of Faith,” was selected as a semi-finalist in the 2013 Kairos Prize for Spiritually Uplifting Screenplays.
Adrienne continues to pursue her passion for television and film and has several projects in development, some of which are listed below:
- Valentine’s Voice (faith-based romantic comedy screenplay)
- Gridiron Dreams (women’s football webseries)
- Devil’s Hit List (multi-episodic series)
- The End of Faith (faith-based dramatic screenplay)
