Elyse recently graduated from Hofstra University with a BS degree in Video/TV and Film. Her first film, Maiden, is currently on it’s festival run. She found a new found interest in writing and directing during the creation of the film. In the future, she hopes to continue her work in the film industry and aims to one day be a Producer for narrative tv and film. Perhaps to even write and direct once more, along the way.
