I've dreamed of being a filmmaker since I was 12 years old. For a long time my interest in film was just a game, something I did because it was fun. My transition into a fully aware filmmaker took many years, many mentors and a lot of stops and starts.  

I particularly enjoy politics, gender and race theory, film history, criticism, camera technique, costuming and production design, topics which are the main focus of this blog. 

My passion for films has informed my other creative and intellectual endeavors. Photography is my second love and I also dabble in painting, writing and graphic design and arts advocacy. 

I consider myself a lifetime student of cinema and the arts.
