Filmmaker. Writer. Storyteller.
I'm an experienced storyteller, documentary filmmaker, and poet. I'm passionate about empowering people through creativity, be that the experience of creating or consuming media/art or face-to-face interactions within educational communities.
I graduated summa cum laude from Kalamazoo College in March 2019, and since then I've moved between Michigan, Germany, and Pittsburgh, working in creative fields and international education. While based in Aachen, Germany through the Fulbright Program, I connected with students and other creatively-minded people and created spaces for them to learn about creative writing and film. I have extensive teaching experience with an emphasis on empowerment and spontaneity.
Now, amidst the wild hum of COVID-19, I'm teaching English in Bonn and sinking myself into art. Connect with me for creative collaborations, video production and post-production, copy-editing, and academic editing services.
