I was always a creative person, using a camera as my main medium of choice. It was not until I was in my second year of a Bachelor’s program at Parsons School of Design in New York City that I realized my true strength was in telling stories authentically through documentary filmmaking. It took me 32-years to find my own voice and feel comfortable sharing the story of traumas I had experienced. That journey has fueled my passion to use documentary film as a tool to give others a platform to be seen and heard. Hearing other human stories offers a great deal of connection and unity. I create short-form documentaries for individuals, small businesses and organizations that want to share their stories and the meaningful work they are doing. I use this as an effective way for their audience to relate to relate to them, and to understand the value of the work they’re doing.
