Adventurous, independent filmmaker.
practical, business savvy producer.
I am a producer and director of film, commercials and online content. My varied agency, production and direct-to-client experience has made me a strong, creative team leader - nimble and quick to problem-solve. I’m known best for my keen storytelling sense, having directed many case studies, documentary shorts and behind the scenes videos.
I ventured into the production industry with a desire to tell socially conscious stories and traveled to Nicaragua to direct my first film The Living Documents (2009.) A troubling account of a human rights attorney's experience defending indigenous communities, the film aired on The Documentary Channel, Central American television networks and screened at festivals, universities and cultural venues. Walk All Night: A Drum Beat Journey (2016) premiered at the San Francisco Black Film Festival and continues to tour the festival circuit across the US and Canada. This documentary follows an idealistic social worker as she initiates an ambitious project to take a group of Chicago street musicians to West Africa.
With The Second City, O'Keefe Reinhard & Paul (Small Agency of the Year 2015), and Europe’s Boom Chicago, I've also developed a niche for comedy - producing commercials, branded content and sketch videos. Independently, I produced The After Party (2014), an official selection of the Chicago Comedy Festival, Midwest Independent Film Festival, Iron Mule, and others.
I am an alumna of Columbia College Chicago. My student loans will be paid off in 2026.
