Writer/producer/director originally from California, with a day job in New York City. Short films have won awards and gotten DVD distribution, and include experimental/abstract, a cops 'n' robbers action comedy, and a father-son drama, all exploring philosophy of identity. Began with still photography and acting in school theater, but really got going after playing hooky for a summer from grad school to take a NY Film Academy Workshop. Filmmaker-in-Residence for a year in NYC at the now sadly disbanded original indie film organization Film/Video Arts, for whose scruffy, nurturing support she continues to be highly grateful.
