My parents raised me in Colorado at the edge of wilderness. Mystery reigned in the vast nature surrounding our home, where the unknown lurked right outside the front door, awaiting discovery. These circumstances taught me the value of exploration and curiosity, and to this day I remain in awe of the beautiful mysteries that life holds.
Studying philosophy imbued in me skepticism and questioning of what we hold as truth and decide to believe. I see filmmaking as an opportunity to grapple with these things, for shared interpretation, a way to interrogate our reality and start new conversations. My mission is to inspire the same feeling I had as a kid walking into an uncharted forest for the first time: an opportunity, a dream, a question, an adventure.
My first short film Sarah Sleeps won the Nikon Storytellers award in 2018, given to ten rising filmmakers around the United States and Canada. My second short, Remnants, won a variety of awards at festivals. I graduated from the Loyola Marymount University film school in December 2020, and currently work freelance.
