Hi! I am an independent filmmaker from Detroit, MI. I received a B.A. in Film from Wayne State University in 2014, and attended Relativity Education's Adult Summer Intensive Workshop for Directing in 2015. My films have screened in the USA, Canada, and Nigeria. My short film "Trapped: The Ultimate Sacrifice" won the Festival Choice Award at the Trinity International Film Festival. I've worked on many projects in various roles from production assistant to producer.
I'm always looking to gain more skills in production, and I'm available to relocate to work on projects. Be sure to check out my links to view my work.
