In 2021 Bridget received two Best Director nominations for her work on the horror thriller film The Retaliators which opened in Theaters in October of 2022. Her feature film SNO BABIES was an official selection and opened up the Reel Recovery Film Festival in Studio City California in 2020. She was nominated as Best Editor that same year at the Queen Palm International Film Festival for her work on RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES.
Born and raised in South Philadelphia, Bridget always had a knack for telling a story. She graduated from Temple University with a degree in Theater and Communications and worked as an actress for years starring in plays and independent films throughout Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City.
At a friend’s urging, she tried her hand at stand-up comedy. Her unique storytelling style and South Philly demeanor earned her a featured spot on Comedy Central’s long running series Premium Blend. While living in New York City, Bridget directed several theater productions such as “The Hand That Feeds You” which was showcased in the Kallisti One Act Festival.
Bridget joined forces with writer/producer Mike Walsh to form their own production company Philly Born Films. They collaborated on “Sno Babies”, a gritty independent feature film inspired by the growing epidemic of suburban teen addiction. Sno Babies was acquired by Better Noise Films. Bridget also went on to direct six more features including The Retaliators which just opened in theaters in October 2022, 7th Secret, Lucky Jack, Once Upon A Philly Christmas, and two thriller horror films due to be released in 2023.
In addition to Directing, Bridget is an accomplished film editor. Her credits include Right Before Your Eyes, where she was nominated as “Best Editor” at the Queen Palm Film Festival, Sno Babies, Leap of Faith, 7th Secret, Lucky Jack, and two feature films for MarVista Entertainment both released on the streaming platform Tubi: A Party To Die For and Girls Getaway Gone Wrong 2.
