Graduate of The New School, Documentary Studies.
I'm a journalism and filmmaking student at Michigan State University.
For my senior capstone, I'm directing an investigative documentary short film. We plan to release our first cut in May 2019. My team plans to continue work on the film during the spring and summer in order include a key story arc involving a character who on her own to discover an environmental hazard was plaguing her town. This version will be released the following winter.

I have a BA in Writing and Producing for television from Columbia College Chicago
I studied Meisner Technique in NYC for 2 years after high school, I then went on to Chicago where I got back to my first love, comedy. I became very involved with the improv and sketch scene which led me to go back to college where I studied TV writing and from there I developed and wrote my own TV pilots as well as spec scripts.
Currently I'm learning more about the technical side of production such as video lighting, editing and sound so I can make my own projects look more professional, as sometime bad sound ect can take a viewer out of an otherwise funny idea or script.
Fun fact: I'm also a trained makeup artist and aesthetician (bikini wax anyone?)
I'm on that hustle like everyone else!
