    The Laguna Beach native played an instrumental role in making one of the biggest festival titles of 2013: John Carney's Can a Song Save Your Life?, starring Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and Hailee Steinfeld. The Weinstein Co. scooped up U.S. rights to the film at the Toronto Film Festival for $7 million, plus a $20 million marketing commitment.

    The Pepperdine graduate, a former child actor whose current job is to arrange and oversee every aspect of a production, counts among her credits Exclusive's The Ides of March, End of Watch and the upcoming horror pic The Quiet Ones.

    IF I'M NOT WORKING: You'll probably find me on a beach with a good book and listening to Bob Marley.

    MOST MEANINGFUL THING IN MY OFFICE: The poster of Undefeated, the 2011 documentary we made about a high school football team in Memphis. It won the Oscar.

    POWER DRINKS SPOT: I used to go to Tom Bergin's. I like a dirty martini, extra dirty.

    PROJECT I'D POACH: Blue Jasmine. Cate Blanchett's performance was amazing.
