Thanks for Visiting!

I’m Jessica O’Brien, a former actress (my acting name was Jessica Mazo).  Thank you for visiting my work in progress writing site. I appreciate your patience as I work to make it easier to navigate. My personal essays, advice columns, celebrity interviews, film and book reviews have been published by Mr. Beller’s Neighborhood, The National Something, and Martini Productions NYC.

I am currently working on a collection of essays about my time pursuing an acting career where some of the other jobs I had included being a stand-in, extra, and body double. I would love to write a mystery novel someday. 

I graduated with my BA in Communications from State University of New York at Albany, where I studied abroad in London at University of Westminster. I live in NY with my husband and dogs, and travel often.
