As a director, editor, and teaching artist, I believe in collaborating to share marginalized stories, honor storytellers' experiences, and use media to raise questions and open hearts and minds.
I currently live in Los Angeles, balancing my time between teaching filmmaking and working on creative projects.
I’ve made features, shorts, documentaries, experimental films, and multimedia work because I love finding the best storytelling strategy for the themes of each project. I’ve relied on strangers across the US (in 2015’s American Bear: An Adventure in the Kindness of Strangers), I’ve traveled around the world for 10 months (in 2016’s Boundaries), and I’ve interviewed a tree (in 2018’s I’m A Tree, supported by the Catskills Creative Residency).
I love exploring stories with my own creative voice as a director, collaborating with other filmmakers to sculpt the most compelling film as an editor, and connecting with young storytellers to develop confidence, community, and creativity as an educator.
