Singer-songwriter, literature professor, screenwriter—Naomi’s career path has been a winding one. But the common denominator is her love of narrative; if there’s a story to be read, deciphered, or told, count her in. After growing up in Northeastern Pennsylvania in a large, loud, and loveable family of eight—an experience that often made her feel like she was living in a John Hughes film—Naomi moved to New York City to attend NYU. She lived in the city for nearly a decade and believes she would have stayed there forever had she not been accepted into the Comparative Literature PhD program at USC, which is what brought her to Los Angeles. While at USC, where Naomi expanded her vocabulary to include words such as “epistemology,” “hermeneutics,” and “poststructuralism,” she also released a couple of albums and managed to receive some decent reviews. Another decade and a husband and child later, she still resides in LA. Naomi honed her skills at mind reading during the years she spent grading undergraduate papers and trying to decode their meaning. She is very relieved to be putting these skills to a new purpose as a treatment writer. The directors she writes for know exactly what it is they want to convey, and translating these ideas into words is a joy—she learns something from them every day. Naomi’s muses are: Robert Louis Stevenson, Shirley Jackson, Mark Kozelek, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
