I am a director and editor who has worked on award-winning documentaries, TV specials and advertising campaigns. My work has been featured in numerous publications such as (but not limited to) Creativity, Fast Company's CoCreate, and The Atlantic. I was also named one of the 10 groundbreaking women in film to watch in 2017 by Vimeo.

I care deeply about every project I work on and I never give anything less than my best. I love the collaborative nature of filmmaking and I enjoy working with others to create a polished product that everyone is excited about. When I'm not making work for brands or networks, I'm making short films that screen in film festivals or online in various publications.

Most recently, my film on Jesselyn Silva premiered on the New York Times as part of the sixth season of OpDocs. I am hoping to create a longer feature film about Jesselyn and her dad Pedro, which you can learn more about at the JessZilla website.

Last year, my short film "Traces" (co-directed with Veena Rao) was featured on Aeon, National Geographic's Short Film Showcase, and The Atlantic's Editors' Pick and premiered at the Hampton's International Film Festival. My other short films have been featured in Fast Company's CoCreate, Complex, Huffington Post, and more.

As an editor I have worked on HBO's award-winning documentary series "East of Main Street" (lead editor) and the feature film "Watchers of the Sky" (associate editor), which took home a Sundance Editing Award.

I hold a BFA from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and I am a member of New York Women in Film & Television, The Film Shop, and IFP.
