As a producer, I am passionate about telling stories that have social impact. I want to share stories of humanity, love, fear, hope, sorrow, and joy. All while cultivating a diverse cast and crew, with a focus on supporting female filmmakers. I am extremely organized and detail-oriented. I am equally comfortable doing paperwork, solving problems, and communicating with personnel. I bring a positive, productive energy to set, and I ask the same.
