Olivia attended Michigan State University, where she studied Film History and Theory, Documentary Filmmaking, and Graphic Design. Her concentration is in writing, photography, filmmaking and media production. Olivia currently maintains her responsibilities as a freelance copywriter and strategic storyteller, while also juggling her roles as an entrepreneur for her photography business, Olivia York Photography. Beyond her photography, Olivia has worked on pre-production work for short and feature films, which have inspired her to create her own screenplays and short productions. Her first short documentary Connecting Kin has recently been completed and is in the early stages of its distribution within the festival circuit, having received five awards already. She also loves writing as a film critic for agnès films, an online publication devoted to supporting women and feminist filmmakers. She thoroughly enjoys her freelance work as a writer for MOCEAN, an entertainment marketing company housed in Los Angeles, California, where she writes original copy, concept material and A/V scripts for trailers of studio films and original streaming and network series. Most of all, Olivia is eager to grow within the media production/entertainment industry, where she hopes to create personal stories for worldwide audiences.
Aside from her various forms of work, Olivia enjoys running at an extremely slow pace, drinking hot cups of coffee (that mainly consist of French Vanilla creamer), swooning over men in turtleneck sweaters, and falling head over heels in love with every dog she meets.
