Inspiring Others to Find Their Voice and Act
a note from the Director
I discovered my affection for storytelling during my time in graduate school, where I pursued degrees in History. From an early stage, my genuine passion for connecting with people has been at the core of who I am. Venturing into the realm of entertainment, I have embarked on numerous projects that have allowed me to capture the essence of hundreds of individuals, conducting countless hours of interviews. With my skills in writing and directing, I have successfully brought to life numerous finished products, including two feature films and a three-season docuseries.
My ultimate goal is to harness the power of storytelling as a means to unite people, encouraging them to actively participate in their communities and make a positive impact.
