Before THE UNDERWRITING, Michelle worked at JP Morgan in Palo Alto and as a strategy consultant in NY and across Europe. She took her first creative writing class at age 26, and, in it, discovered an outlet for the observations and philosophical grapplings milling around in her brain. After a few pseudonymous successes, she set off to write full time and has never looked back. Equally interested in the art of stories and the business of their delivery, Michelle's aim is to produce projects that are clever in both.
Michelle is a French-American Foundation Young Leader, a Tribeca Disrupt Fellow and a trustee of Belarus Free Theatre.  She holds a BA in Literature and an MBA from Stanford University, and splits her time between New York, London & her hometown of Asheville, North Carolina.
