Still from A Paid Connection (2021).

Stories were made to share.

I identify as a storyteller. I love how a story has the power to captivate and enthrall audiences, transporting them to new places and times and leaving everyone just a bit different by the end. I am also drawn to visuals and strong imagery which is why I am passionate about filmmaking.

I do not think many people have realized the enormous influence media and entertainment wield. I love how the industry is constantly changing and how innovative the field is. There truly is magic in telling stories and I am so grateful to be able to share my own.

Along with my academic film projects, I also consistently create content for my personal YouTube channel which has increased my ability to work with deadlines and take initiative. I know that I have to hold myself accountable and that has pushed me to work hard and efficiently.

I am a Film and Media Arts Major (Directing Concentration) in my senior year at Temple University with a minor in General Business Studies. I am also in the Temple Honors Program and have a 4.0 GPA.
