I am NOT a WOMAN, I am NOT an IMMIGRANT, I am NOT an AMERICAN, I am NOT WHITE - I am a just ANOTHER HUMAN with NO COUNTRY, NO FLAG, NO RELIGION, and NO PROBLEMS telling STORIES that help dissolve boundaries and the illusion of separation between people due to race, gender or class to help craft a more inclusive WORLD.
And I am your HUMAN if you are looking for someone to create engaging, moving, sometimes laugh-out-loud stories in both Narrative Film, Branded Content, and VR. I am the new breed of multiplatform storytelling talent envisioning and realizing the future of media.
I teach directing and VR filmmaking at the New York Film Academy.
