I am a filmmaker currently living in Chicago, and, when I can’t help it,
Basic skills include an understanding of basic cinematography, lighting, grip work, sound, and post production (editing and spfx). I know the “grip work” portion stands out, or leaves a large ‘?’ in your mind because I am a girl, but yes, believe it or not I have arms that are perfectly capable of lifting and carrying large objects.
I have a secret dream of getting work as a screenwriter, I’ve spent the bulk of my film career as a documentary director in which I’ve fallen in love with over and over again, but I got my start as a video colorist and editor while simultaneously producing short films during my time in University.

Going to school in the neighbourhood and climate of the University of Southern California challenged me to think deeply about the construction of identity and race; within those the issues arise a multi-dimensional response to interact with the world. Working within that rhetoric allows me to pursue both fiction and non-fiction narratives.
I operate best when I’m asking myself questions. The current question plaguing my mind is: instead of seeking the ways the world can be structured to serve my desires, what if I instead responded to the question of how can I serve the world?
