Born and raised in Chicago, Mo attended Notre Dame of Maryland University where she majored in marketing and minored in music. After graduating, she began her professional career at Paramount Pictures in Hollywood, California. As the principal liaison for Paramount’s Merchandising and Licensing Department, she coordinated all phases of product development for their film and television properties, including NBC sitcoms: Cheers, Family Ties, Star Trek, and various feature films.
Transitioning into television production, she began working with two of the greatest producing pioneers in sitcom history who were known for writing and directing hits like All In the Family, Maude, The Brady Bunch, Gilligan’s Island, and I Dream of Jeannie, which led her into film production for The Kennedy/Marshall Company and Miramax Films. As a production executive, she continued coordinating all aspects of film development. From pre-production to principal photography and post-production, she worked on films like Schindler’s List, Beautiful Girls, Scream, Scream 2, Kids, and Copland.
After working for some of the funniest and most creative writers in the entertainment business, she was hired as the Director of Development for a production company at Universal Studios. While helping others to write and develop their materials into manuscripts and screenplays, she discovered her own passion for writing, which led her back to her hometown of Chicago and a Master of Arts in writing from DePaul University.
Married with two boys, she is currently a freelance writer with clients in the United States, Australia, Germany, and Japan, and the founder and creator of her website, humormewithmo.com, writing about day-to-day life with a humorous twist. Humor, she says, is the weapon against all of life’s absurdities, and, the best medicine for anything that ails her.
