I'm an award winning filmmaker originally from San Francisco, but I now live in NYC where I attend Columbia University. Among other awards, I have won both best drama and best comedy at CineYouth Chicago, I was a 2015 National YoungArts Winner, and a US Presidential Scholars in the Arts Semifinalist.
I want to make films that have both strong stories and images. When I write, I always try to convey backstory, relationship dynamics and emotions through the camera, not just the dialogue. And when I film, I make sure that every shot is visually strong and interesting. I believe that films are about conveying emotion, and that the best way to do this is through what is heard and what is seen.
