As a non-binary artist who came from an underrepresented sector, I'm adamant about my commitment to creating meaningful and educational audiovisual arts entertainment from an inclusive perspective.

My films/scripts highlight the importance of science, art, education, and history. Whenever I kick off a new project, I remember I am the result of a large chain of ancestors. We are the daughters and sons of history.

I define myself as:

Kingdom: Animal
Phylum: Chordata/Vertebrate
Class: Mammalia
Order: Primate
Family: Hominid
Genre: Homo
Species: Sapiens
Humanity: Artist
