I am an Austin, Texas, based writer and director of film, media, and theatre. I am fascinated by telling stories, communicating ideas visually, and fighting to create powerful independent cinema.
My passion is for advancing image-making and storytelling, and exploring the ways in which cinema can move forward in the twenty-first century.
I am fascinated by exploring new distribution methods, process oriented cinema, experimental theatre, and new financing structures for independent narrative content.
I have shared my short films with audiences in festivals around the United States and Internationally.
Festival selections include Cannes Film Festival (Short Film Corner,) Colorado Environmental Film Festival, South Alabama Film Festival, Interlochen International Film Festival, Low Country Film Festival, Fort Worth Indie Film Showcase, Hillcountry Film Festival, Asheville Cinema Festival, Ruby Mountain Film Festival, Savannah Film Festival, Independents Film Festival, among others. Awards include first place award for narrative filmmaking in the Texas Media Awards and a runner up for Narrative filmmaking in the Ruminate Video Art Prize.
After graduating with a B.F.A. in Film & Television directing from the Savannah College of Art and Design, I moved back to my home-state of Texas to be apart of one of the most robust independent filmmaking communities in the United States.
