I trained at the experimental theatre wing of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. After receiving my BFA in Drama, I performed Off-Broadway and in several indie films before jumping behind the camera as a filmmaker. My debut fantastical horror short, Venefica, played at over 25 festivals around the world before being picked up by the fine folks over at Shudder. In 2017, I also had a fun feature in the New York Times on my experiences as a woman of color horror filmmaker. Through photography, I've been able to do some amazing fashion/editorial collaborations and meet some incredibly talented performers who've inspired me along the way.
