My love for learning, listening, and engaging drives my filmmaking. Everyday I am thankful for the opportunity to make movies, participate in the community, and help tell stories that will resonate and empower.
I am a documentary filmmaker based in Brooklyn NY. My work is a blend of personal story telling and activism. The goal of my work is to bring audiences towards a deeper, emotionally engaged, understanding of topics and themes that are often marginalized and suppressed.
My films have screened internationally at venues and festivals such as:
Chicago Underground Film Festival, New York Underground Film Festival, Oakland International Film Festival, Anthology Film Archives, Berlin Director's Lounge, Chicago Filmmakers, Allied Media Conference, The People's Film Festival
My current projects explore the intersection of ageing, age-ism, caretaking, immigration, and racism. I am interested in the convergence of 2 hyper marginalized communities: the ageing poplulation, and the immigrant (mostly women) of color who take care of them.
My current short film, Sum of My Parts, which is about dementia, loss and disappearance, is part of that larger project.
Additionally, I work as a documentary editor on feature films, documentary series, and podcasts. My work has appeared on Showtime, Hulu, PBS' Frontline, and Epix and have won Emmy and Peabody awards.
