My vision is to create entertaining, inspiring, and transformative media using a naturalistic documentary approach.

My credits include:

- Documentary filmmaker of three short films highlighting the voices of under-represented people, screened at various film festivals (including the Atlanta International Documentary Film Festival and Big Apple Film Festival) and an observational feature film, Waiting for Bekir.

- Production Manager on films for PBS broadcast (including The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution).

- Story consultant for documentary films in production.

I am currently a resident filmmaker at the Ninth Street Independent Film Center's Incubator Program, working on a short animated film on highway protests against police violence.
