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 or consult on engaging, moving, sometimes laugh-out-loud, and technically challenging stories in both traditional and new media. I am the new breed of transmedia storytelling talent envisioning and realizing the future of media.

I am based out of New York, but my work has taken me to the far reaches of this planet and am an expert in producing international production.

Some of my clients, who think I'm quite swell, include:

I am part of the NEW INC’s Immersive Experiences Track 2018 with my company little GIANT Wolf, a value-driven trans-cultural transmedia story studio focused on multi-platform serialized projects that help make global issues personal and offers tools to people around the world to tell their own stories. We also service brands, agencies, publications, and non-profits to engage with their audiences and consumers more meaningfully. 

*Transmedia = One storyworld, many stories, many formats, many channels, both old and new.

*Transcultural = Seeing oneself in the other and finding something that's true across all cultures of people.

I teach traditional and VR filmmaking at the New York Film Academy

I am a member of Association of Women Directors (AWD), New York Women in Film & Television (NYWIFT), Film FatalesFilmshop, Sci-Five, and NEW INC.
