Her current feature-writing project is Rewriting Violet. Through her protagonist, Violet, Terri explores women’s shifting sexual power on screen and off after the film industry adopted the 1933 Hays Code. The code drastically changed the portrayal of sex in the movies and dramatically shifted power away from the women who ruled the silver screen at the time.
Terri also worked at Universal Studios as Manager of Feature Production Services for ten years. She worked on such films as Meet the Fockers, Spiderman II, The Cat in the Hat, The Lost World, Oh Brother Where Art Thou?, Jurassic Park III, Amistad, U2’s Elevation music video, and many others.

She worked closely with producers to deliver physical production support for filming on the lot. She was given the opportunity to reach out to indie filmmakers to offer Universal’s locations, offices and services.  Through this program she developed relationships with many independent filmmakers.
She is currently writing and developing television and feature projects with Phil Goldfine’s company, Hollywood Media Bridge.
