Visual storytelling is a passion that started in high school, shooting stills of my rock star idols and then continued on at the horse race track, where my initial dream to become a jockey turned into a photography business.
Later, I found myself in the film industry, where I had the opportunity to travel the world, meeting and working with other likeminded people. Being in this creative field, in collaboration with others is what makes this work so rewarding to me.
I am always trying to learn new ideas and improve my craft as a Filmmaker. In 2013, I was invited to write and direct a short narrative for the SIFF Fly Film program. In 2015, I attended a documentary intensive at the Wild Mind Film Camp and in 2019, I was one of 19 people selected to attend the Women’s Cinematography intensive program at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles.
