I love film because it allows us dream and empathize with each other and can have a very real influence on how we view the world. In my own filmmaking, I am interested in revealing the extraordinary in the everyday, and creating a strong connection between the audience and world behind the screen.

My films have screened at festivals across the U.S and internationally and have been featured on publications such as The Atlantic.

Recently I directed So You Think You Can Vote? for the We the Voters series, co-produced by Vulcan Productions, Show of Force and Warrior Poets.

I co-produced Art, Architecture and Innovation: Celebrating the Guggenheim Museum, and was an associate producer on The New Black and Cooked. I've also produced and edited videos for publications and organizations such as the Guggenheim Museum, The Guardian, and The New Yorker.

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

I'm always interested in new collaborations and would love to hear from you.
