" After finishing her BA at Arizona State in Tempe, she found her way to Hollywood, eventually launching Movieline magazine, which she edited for six years. Dirt! The Movie, codirected and coproduced by her husband Bill Benenson, is her first feature, and she is credited as the executive producer, a title she describes as “honorary.” “Traditionally, [the executive producer is] the person who gets the funding, so I think I get the credit for saying ‘Fine, spend our money on this crazy movie.’”

"Future projects include a documentary about women and makeup, Sacred Vanities, and a screenplay about the life of Rachel Carson. In the meantime, she can take pleasure in knowing that she’s proven that a dirty movie can change lives for the better. " [1]
