WRITER / DIRECTOR
Often tortured by safety and repetition, I delight in exposing the nature of the adaptable, recoverable, independent and transformable human being.
It is our scars which are our most prominent testimonies to having lived.
Jena graduated from Temple University with a BS in economics. She co-created UNCUT PRODUCTIONS in 2003 with Mark A. Dahl and Benjamin Kanes. In 2005 She created SWEETBREADSTUDIOS with Sharon Roggio, Dawn M. Smith and Jonathan Hafer. Since inception she has written, produced and directed a veritable menagerie of strange works while operating within the delightfully restrictive confines of a bizarre corporate world.
Outside of Uncut and Sweetbreads she has assisted many great talents such as David Von Roehm, MediaGiants, Nehst Studios and Larry Meistrich, Willie Nelson’s Luck Films, Julia Othmer, Traverse Arts Project, Interpret Green, MBN Studios, the students of ChARTer Tech Highschool for the Performing arts, TLA, The Fringe Festival, Peek-a-Boo Revue, Norm Macera, Matthew Russell, Saint Sinner Entertainment, Ningun, Mark Kohanowitz, Main Street Productions, Willie Nelson’s Parkinsons Foundation and others…
Jena is a workaholic who is kept afloat and properly playful by the amazing people who have found their way into her world, and her into theirs.
