1) Why did you decide to get into this industry?

My favorite part of film school was editing. I sat by myself in the dark and spliced the film strip together with tape. Then watched the results fly past on the moviola. I had created meaning. I was hooked and determined to do this for a living.

 

2) What’s a defining moment in your life?

Listening to the Clash’s “London Calling”. I played it over and over again. It gave voice to my frustrations as a teenager and my uncertainty for the future. But it also confirmed for me that the last thing I wanted for my life was conformity. I wasn’t gonna work for the clampdown.

 

3) What is your biggest concern with the future?

I fear for this country, for the future we inflict on the entire world. I fear that a large sector of voters have been fooled. Their worst demons have escaped and I don’t know if we can put the lid back on, let alone change their minds. I fear that Trump has ruined us in irreparable ways.

 

4) What is a successful moment in your career so far?

Working on the Emmy winning “Witness: Katrina” and being forever changed by the images I saw.

 

5) What advice do you have for other women in the industry?

Trust your unique voice. Your voice may not be the loudest in the room, but if you remain sensitive to the footage, the choices you make will give voice to many more than just your own.

 

6) What, if anything, do you collect?

It used to be records. But now it’s outdoor plants in the spring.

 

7) What are you working on next? In addition, if people want to find out more about you, where can they find you on social media?

I have a television series I’m working on now that will air on the Travel Channel in March. I’m also in a new town, Austin, where I hope to find new filmmakers to work with.
