I’m filmmaker with a primary focus in cinematography. My films embody a visual style that is minimal, yet intimate. Over the years I’ve shaped a body of work that puts women and underrepresented communities at the forefront, as keepers of their own images. That same care forms the foundation for each and every project I take on.

Based in Los Angeles, I’ve created short films, music videos, and commercials that have debuted on outlets such as The Root, Essence, NPR Music, Participant Media, and has been screened in theaters across the country.
