Project Manager for Alaska Channel
Darcy just celebrated 1 year as an Alaskan resident, a recent transplant from Ohio. She works as a Project Manager for Alaska Channel and is a film industry groupie. Her brilliant transformation of avocados to resemble alien eggs was instrumental to her team winning Judge's Choice and Audience Choice in the 2017 24-Hour Film Royal competition. When she's not working and taking credit for incredible video work that she had absolutely nothing to do with, you can find Darcy at Anchorage reMADE, a local non-profit that enables her addiction to save the planet by upcycling and painting old furniture. She is honored and truly stoked to be a judge for this competition.
