After graduating from Yale’s School of Drama in Directing, Gordon first gained recognition when her script for a Hard Rain was chosen by Showtime’s Discovery Program. Thanks to Steven Spielberg, a roughcut of her film attracted the attention of George Lucas who donated the film’s mix at Skywalker Ranch. A Hard Rain went on to win dramatic awards at the British Short Film Festival and the Hampton’s Film Festival. A Hard Rain caught the eye of David E. Kelley who enlisted Gordon to helm multiple episodes of his television series including Picket Fences, Chicago Hope, Ally McBeal, and the Practice. Gordon has directed over 100 hours of network television including such critically acclaimed series as Legion, Bloodline, Empire, Rectify, Kingdom, Power, Hell on Wheels, Madam Secretary, the Office, 30 Rock, Sports Night, and HBO’s Tracey Takes On, for which Gordon won the DGA Comedy Award.
Gordon is a sought after commercial director having completed campaigns recently with Jimmy Fallon, Betty White, and Don Cheadle. She has recently completed a short dramatic film for Huawei, which was shot in Prague.
