New York, NY, USA


With a degree in art and a background as a VFX assistant in the commercial ad world, I launched my career as a writer-director. As an emerging writer-director, my accomplishments include: I was an NBPC / Thirteen|WNET fellow and $50K grant winner for my fantasy drama web series, Pixie Dust. Pixie Dust was also a semi-finalist in the NYTVF / Participant Media “Works for Progress” initiative where it garnered the attention of HBO. I was a Ron Howard / Canon Project Imaginat10n photo contest winner. My short film, Transporter, was a Project Imaginat10n film finalist. Imagery from that film was used in Canon’s national TV campaign featuring Ron Howard. Canon went on to commission me to create demo content for their follow up contest. I converted my Pixie Dust web series concept into a feature film script. It was a finalist for the 2018 Sundance Screenwriter’s Lab. My career goal is to become a TV staff writer and eventually a showrunner, all the while writing and directing indie feature films.
