Former Judge, USA

At a young age, Diana Beechener realized that her bizarre imagination left her two options in life: writer or pathological liar. She chose writer… or did she?

One of the newest senior Mash judges, Diana has a BA in Liberal Arts from Sarah Lawrence College, where she studied literary analysis and film history. A proud member of the Washington Area Film Critics Association, she is a journalist and film reviewer for Bay Weekly. She is also a PR blogger and consultant, helping businesses improve their written communications and social media relationships.

Diana’s passions include movies, mystery novels, all things Jane Austen, and the Baltimore Orioles. She lives and works in the Chesapeake Bay area of Maryland.
