Tara is a filmmaker who grew up in New England fascinated by local folktales and has been writing short stories since childhood. A former contributing writer for the live sketch-comedy show "TMI Hollywood" at The Second City, she wrote and produced her first short film, the comedic "Another Grace & Johnny Adventure: Zombie Island!" which went on to play the film festival circuit. This was followed by her award-winning sci-fi short "The Routine." Then came Tara's directorial debut with the critically acclaimed "Earworm," a horror/suspense short film she penned that has been an Official Selection of over 50 film festivals world-wide and has won ten awards, including Best Director. Subsequently she directed the 80s-themed music video "The Worst Thing" by The Skanx. Tara has also worked as a freelance writer and producer on a variety of projects for HBO, Amazon Prime, Travel Channel, amongst others. She currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their viking-shaped cat, and is in pre-production on her next film.
