"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
- Maya Angelou
This quote by American poet, Maya Angelou, is what drives me as a storyteller. With any project I am a part of, I strive to make people feel. Storytelling is my way of understanding the world. It is my way of connecting to other human beings, in hopes that my made-up stories and personal experiences will inspire, encourage, or motivate at least someone to change a part of themselves or to change the world.
As a recent graduate of Columbia College Chicago's Cinema Art + Science program, I am very eager to continue building my professional network and experience so I can succeed in this industry. I am a firm believer of throwing myself in the deep end. In other words, I enjoy jumping into any project with the full intention of working my hardest to stay afloat, no matter how difficult. That is how I learn best.
I love many aspects of film, but writing and directing are where my heart truly lies. With one un-produced feature and ten short scripts under my belt, five of which have been produced, and three which I have directed, I am always searching for motivated individuals to collaborate with. Please contact me if you are interested in working together or finding out more about who I am and what I do.
