Director + Creative Producer

Hailing from Seattle, I am a creative producer & filmmaker based in New York City. In my seven years of experience in the entertainment industry and four years in film distribution, I’ve had the pleasure of working with dynamic teams at Screen Media, STARZ and Participant Media where storytelling and the business of film intersect.

More recently, I’ve broadened my scope into the world of directing after producing a series of projects centered around Black stories. In ‘Mind Playin’ Tricks On Me’, which I served on as Executive Producer, I was able to merge my passion for mental health in the Black community with my love of filmmaking.
