Medeni is the epitome of cool. She not only looks the part, but does the work. What does she do? Well, that's an interesting question. While she is currently on pre-production for a feature film, she's also a writer, director, cinematographer, producer, jack-of-all trades, bad ass lady of leisure. She's worked for companies like Fox Searchlight, Warner Bros., The BBC, and The Times Newspaper in London. Let's not even talk about the Film Festivals she's been recognized at. Only sort of cool? Oh, did I mention a Grammy award winning band asked her to go on tour with them for a year? Yeah, even rock stars think she's rockin' and she is.
On a personal level, Medeni is probably one of the easiest people to talk to and the partner you'd want in any crime. She's funny, hardworking and always bringing out the best in everyone around her.
