As a Colorado native, raised in the suburbs of Denver, I grew up surrounded by log cabin homes, vintage clothing stores and hippie tea shops. I love dogs and hug trees on my weekend hikes. When I was 12 years old, I watched The Lion King and Platoon in the same weekend with my Papa. Maybe my film exposure was a bit different...

As a creative specializing in film, my drive is not just telling a story, but showing a story. Even creating a story that has more to it than what the average human experiences day-to-day. Emotions, color, light, shadows and movement. It is through my work that I challenge societal and cultural norms, make statements and mold messages of change. My creative process has been curated by my personal experiences and the mentoring of talent that surrounds me.
