In addition to making films, I enjoy writing, hiking, and spending time with my family. Being a visual story teller has always been an important part of how I defined myself. As an undergraduate film student I came to love documentary film because of the way it brought real people who were very different from me to life in a way that nothing else could. Since graduation I have sought to find projects that would allow me to interact with. Currently I am a graduate student studying education. I am passionate about learning through creating, and hope to someday integrate my interest in education with my love of visual storytelling.
