About

I am a writer, director, and producer, with over ten years of experience working on a wide range of international projects. Raised as a global nomad in six countries, I like to channel my diverse, cross-cultural experiences into the stories I share.

 

For as long as I can remember, I have had a constant desire to explore new places and interact with new people. I love discovering stories that connect people intrinsically to one another beyond traditional and restrictive boundaries.

I have a background in both media studies and film/TV production from Miami University (Ohio) and New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. I have been pursuing various types of writing - screenwriting, film criticism, and academia - as well as directing and producing scripted and documentary films that stay true to my cross-cultural roots. I’m currently based in New York City, though you’re very likely to find me working on a range of projects with collaborators around the world. 

When I’m not working on film projects, I will embrace any opportunity to travel and eat new types of food. For more details on my work, please browse the site.
