Rebecca has a Masters degree in Media Arts from the University of South Carolina and a Bachelors in Astronomy from the University of Virginia.  Her documentaries have screened at the Indie Grits Film Festival, the Reel Black Pix Film Festival, and the Leander McCormick Observatory Public Nights; and they have encompassed topics as diverse as globular clusters of stars, drag queens, sheep, and community art.

Her feature film script, In Spite of It All, was a finalist in the 2015 Nashville Film Festival and was a quarterfinalist in the 2015 Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Nicholl Fellowship competition.  Nicholl readers described it as “a thoroughly enjoyable, charming love story just brimming with Irish wit and sass” that “succeeds in making history feel personal.”  The script was also praised by the Blue Cat Screenplay Competition as “rich with extraordinary detail and references to great Hollywood epics” and “particularly interesting in its exploration of the fragmented Irish identity.”

Rebecca’s TV spec pilot script, Finding George, has also been a finalist in two international screenwriting competitions and was described as “wisely written”, “clever in its subtlety” and “a very exciting science fiction epic” by the WILDsound Feedback Festival.

Rebecca is the Undergraduate Student Services Coordinator and an Adjunct Instructor for the University of South Carolina’s School of Visual Art and Design.  She enjoys British television, grapefruit juice, and the Oxford Comma.
