Hey, I'm Emily!

Los Angeles, California

Hello Seed and Spark!

My name is Emily McLeod and I am a writer and actress based in Los Angeles. When Mary Met Betsy is my first foray as a filmmaker, but I have been acting for over a decade and have been part of a screenwriter's group called "The Bad Pitch" for a year and a half. 

I love telling stories--particularly about women, and particularly funny ones. So if this project makes you smile, then I feel like I've done my job. Thanks for taking a look.
