My name is Ivy. I’m a film producer.
Long winded self descriptions tend to be skewed and boring, so why don’t I just tell you twelve random facts about me?

  1. In 2010, I spent half a year traveling North America on $9 a day. Like, including Alaska and Hawaii. Yes, I’ll write a book about it someday, and fuck no, I’m not doing it again.
  2. I host a cooking show called Delicious In Your Face. I am most famous for writing an ebook about Bacon Cheesecakes. THE SWEET KIND.
  3. I believe in oversharing and no holds barred honesty.
    I think that the worst part about having a bad episode in life is not feeling shitty, but not wanting to feel shitty, and thinking that nobody ever has ever felt as shitty as you and oh my god; and if we all just told each other all the things that are going on a little more often, I’m convinced everybody would feel more connected and the world would be a better place.
  4. The person I am today was shaped while on travels in Perth, Australia. You are not allowed to say anything bad about Perth. You will get elbowed in the face.
  5. Two of the best things in life are fancy dinner parties with friends and late night conversations. Oh, and onesie sleepovers with cheesecake.
  6. When I was 16 years old, I wrote a feature length screenplay called ‘The Absence of Butterflies’ over the span of 8 months. In May 2008, I locked myself into my room with a tub of hazelnut icecream, went on a crazy writing spree, and finished two days before my birthday. JUST SO THAT I COULD SAY I DID IT AT AGE 16.
  7. I had the most amazing night ever by the Yukon River in Alaska. I saw the Northern Lights, laughed, cried, yelled expletives, and realized that if one night can be this perfect, life as a whole can’t be that bad.
  8. I love airports. I really fucking love airports. Also I’m terrified of flying. Also I’ve been in 16 airplanes this year.
    Courage isn’t not being afraid, it’s doing it anyway. I just do all the things anyway.
  9. There are two situations in which I cannot be spoken to: In the mornings and when I’m hungry. If anybody reading this has advice, throw it at me. Until then, do not approach me without food and caffeine.
  10. When I’m shooting a film, I feel like the universe aligns. I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing, living the life I’m supposed to be living. There’s nothing to question. This is why I do what I do.
  11. I have an irrational fear of sharks. As a child, I didn’t even want to go into swimming pools because of it. And I’ve never even seen Jaws.
  12. Some of the best advice I ever got was “If it feels good, do it. If it doesn’t feel good, don’t do it.”

One thought on “About

    You have done SO MUCH in so little time of being on this planet that I’m without words to describe how this inspires me. Your definition of courage is how I live my life but better articulated through your definition. Terrified of heights (I rock climb). terrified of water and can’t swim (I river raft, springboard dive, float in the bay), terrified of people once upon a time (own a salon and now love connecting with people).We met on Fito and I had to check you out a little bit. You’re amazing and you help enable people. You are what makes this world go around in a better way. Thanks for doing what you do mate, cheers!
