A photographer turned filmmaker, I graduated with a Photography degree from UIC in 2013 and quickly transitioned into film. It was an organic process brought about by curious friends with video cameras. My directing work tends to focus on people’s capacity for intimacy. I make work about cathartic experiences and mental suffering. I explore the varying definitions of love and what it means to have responsibility for another’s growth – the push/pull of relationships, the bend before the break. My aim is to show the ways in which vulnerability is a strength.
My cinematography and editing work has been exhibited on a number of press outlets including The Chicago Reader, Billboard, Paper Magazine, Indiewire, OUT, Elle, Apple Music, Pitchfork, and Teen Vogue.
