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...

My greatest moment of 2018 was when I met Lamorne Morris (Winston Bishop from New Girl). Netflix has been my only loyal companion and I get bored of Instagram-famous people, daily.

I hate ads but love advertising. Something about telling a story and giving people something, whether a product or service, that changes their life is beautiful. I think it’s a societal crime that it’s a “Mad Men” industry, though. You could say that’s one of my biggest motivations to be in advertising filmmaking and make a positive difference.
