I'm an award-winning documentary editor and director with a passion for social justice and storytelling. I've edited multiple award-winning documentaries, including the 2016 Oscar Shortlisted documentary, The Other Side of Home, as well as the Emmy award-winning documentary series, Wonder Women. As a director, my latest documentary, Second Assault, (co-directed by Jillian Corsie) explores the trauma of reporting sexual violence, and the "second assault" survivors often experience when they are not believed. It recently won the Audience Choice Award at the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival, as well as other awards including Best Director.
I have an M.A. in Latin American Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara, where I studied the role of documentary film in social movements. I'm incredibly passionate about the power of cinema, and how it can be used as a tool for social change.
