A born-and-bred New Yorker, Sarah was raised on a steady diet of Broadway, Buffy, and Bugs Bunny, as well the incredibly well-timed gift of a box of X-Men comics for her Bat Mitzvah. She graduated from the University of Chicago with a B.A. in East Asian History and, after a detour into New York’s experimental theater scene, graduated with an M.F.A in Film from Columbia University. Her screenplay The Adventures of Awesome Girl received Faculty Honors from Columbia and went on to be an Academy Nicholl Fellowship Semifinalist.


Recently, Sarah staffed for two seasons on the scary adventure-comedy Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai, coming to HBO MAX in late 2022. Sarah was also a staff writer for three seasons on DreamWorks Animation/Netflix's Harvey Girls Forever! She has also done development work for top-secret projects at King Features, Dreamworks Animation, Nickelodeon, and Warner Bros, and she has written freelance episodes for a variety of animated shows, including upcoming ones like Bugs Bunny Builders, Tiny Chef, Monster High, Bossy Bear, and HexVet, as well as several not-yet-announced projects. 

She is repped at the Gotham Group.
