I love film because it allows us dream and empathize with each other, and can have a very real influence in how we view the world. In my own work, I am interested in revealing the extraordinary in the everyday. Being able to learn about the experiences of others, and translating those stories into moving images, is an incredible privilege and challenge.

My work has screened at festivals in the U.S. and internationally, has been featured on The New York Times, The Atlantic, National Geographic, Vimeo's Staff Picks, and has been supported by the New York Council for the Arts (NYSCA).  

I've also produced work for BBC TravelThe Guardian, Vice, the Guggenheim Museum, and The New Yorker.

I'm an alumna of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, and a member of Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective and New York Women in Film & Television

I'm always interested in new collaborations. I'd love to hear from you!
