While giving voice to that rebellious part inside of us.
Since she was a litle girl, she wrote and drew stories; but she officially got the “bug” when she took a job as Gene Roddenberry’s (the creator of Star Trek) wife’s office manager. She wasn’t really a fan, but they gave her Gene’s office to work out of (he had passed awhile back but everything was all there. She sat in a huge brown leather chair in a room filled with all of his magical thoughts and belongings. She immediately felt the tug to write and turned in her own versions of scripts and ideas for a new TV show they were working on Earth: Final Conflict, but she couldn’t break into the writers pool. She took an assignment working with Diane Ladd, actress, to assist in writingher autobiography and spent four months in Sedona wriSng and doing yoga. Diane became a mentor to Gina, but she really needed to be out in the world; so she tapped a job at Tapestry Films as a production coordinator, and on her Sme off she was allowed to read scripts and provide script coverage. She read anywhere from 15-30 scripts a week. Some movies that came out of that experience was “Pay It Forward,” She’s All That,” and “Wedding Crashers.” She really begged them to produce “Men in Black,” but they didn't think it would do anything. Gina’s first feature film script was a rock opera titled “The Unforgiven Bag.” The problem was it was a love story that used her then ex-husband’s entire music library from Flogging Molly and since they had broken up, he did not let her use the music. A predictable defeat. She moved along through several studios and digital media companies working on the largest of properties such as Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, and more but the draw to develop unique content for television, film and publishing became to much for her so she started Cavalier Originals.
