Angela is a DGA Episodic TV Director that transitioned into directing after over 10 years of working as an episodic 1st AD. After shooting a few short films and music videos, she realized that directing was an amazing way to combine her knowledge of filmmaking, love of adventure and often scandalous sense of humor. Soon directing went from hobby to new hustle.
Her first shot at directing episodic TV was on the last season of the sitcom "Eve." Since then, she wrote and directed the single camera microseries, "My Manny" and "Gillian in Georgia" for TBS, as well as directed on the BET sitcom, "Let's Stay Together." She was chosen as a fellow for the 2014 - 2016 class of the ABC/Disney director program and signed with the Brant Rose Agency in 2015. In 2016 she was chosen as a fellow for the Fox Global Directors Initiative, and later was selected for the Fox Comedy Apprentice Program. Recently, she directed an episode of the Nickelodeon sitcom, "Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn" followed by an episode of the new BET drama, "The Quad."
Angela is known on most sets for her quick wit, generous spirit and intolerance of mean people. She mentors several young filmmakers and is active with several Atlanta and LA based film organizations.
