Public bio

As a Emerging Documentary Filmmaker I am committed to social equality and fair representation of marginalized populations. I believe a documentary project directly reflects the relationship between the filmmaker and those being filmed, thus, my work explicitly represents the trust, commitment and reverence I have established with those who share their story with me.

I make my films with the intention of connecting people, alleviating ethnocentrism, and providing visual and narrative evidence to help people learn about the world in which we live, consequently sparking a reaction, probing questions and exploring the idea of social change.  By harnessing the power of narrative visuals and technology, I am able to contribute to an art that provides an accessible and entertaining avenue for people to learn, grow, connect, and act.
