Hope grew up onstage alongside local artists in Mobile, AL. She earned her B.A. in Creative Writing & Theatre Performance from Tulane University's Honors College, where her first play, Monopolis, won Tulane's Janice Torre Perky Award for Original Writing. She wrote, produced, directed, and played a lead onstage role in its premiere for her honors thesis. Her goal was for each character in the 9-person cast, aged 14-74, to have a moment in which the play was about them. Hope’s mission remains creating and supporting collaborative projects.
Hope's first screenplay, Blood Rust, was a 2017 Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition quarter-finalist. Her first film writer/director efforts, Heard, a music video collaboration with Kaye the Beast, and My Lethal Weapon, a short comedy/thriller in which she also performed, were official selections at festivals including (Academy Award®-qualifying) Atlanta Film Festival and Sidewalk Film Festival (2018), among others. Hope's team-oriented attitude and tenacity draw her toward "impossible" challenges.
