I am here to reimagine...

I am here to reimagine facing mortality as a doorway to presence and fullness. Through film, writing and visual art, I aim to discover and share fulfillment through appreciation. I see death and dying as a means to overcome separateness.

My Story

I grew up with addicted parents. As a result, mortality was always a concept swirling in my life. When I was 16, my mother died. Though I would not wish my experience on anyone, it opened me up in profound ways. Through my time at NYU Film/TV, I cultivated filmmaking and art as a spiritual and healing process. I aim to provide legacy work, compassion and voices to those who can benefit.
