A film by The Asylum, Directed by Emile Edwin Smith.

It was a pleasure to work with Emile and deliver his film with some fun VFX.


WiM Holiday Lunch 2017


The #WiMHolidayLunch was very inspiring! The honored guests Nancy Schreiber, Amy Holden Jones, Kira Kelly and Germaine Franco told stories of their careers that encouraged others and also reminded us of how cruel inequality in the biz can be. I was proud to be there in support. Thanks Rebellious Rabbit Integrated Marketing Communications for the gracious invite.

Through the Women In Media CAMERAderie Initiative, our community will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience, networking, mentorship, and professional development via production of three short films this summer, culminating in a black carpet reception and screening of the three Finalist films in October.  It was an honor to be involved.
