Thanks for stopping by! I'm a conservation filmmaker, Emerging League Fellow at the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP), and an avid explorer of stories and nature.   As a filmmaker and storyteller, my focus is to uplift the voices of women all around the world and bring deeper public understanding to the complexities of gender and conservation, environmental justice, and climate change. It’s important to me that storytelling is approached in a participatory way. I care about the individuals within stories and make sure that the visual narrative is true to their character and place. ‍ On location, you can find me interviewing, directing teams and film sequences, setting up lights, monitoring sound, or capturing the action behind the camera with a long lens and sticks, gimbal, shoulder-rig, underwater housing, or drone controller. You can also find me setting up motion-controlled timelapses and 4K video camera traps. Sometimes referred to as the 'one-woman-band,' I am also well-versed in Adobe programs for design, editing, and motion graphics.  ‍ I received a Bachelors of Film & Media Arts and Environmental Science at American University where I was involved with the school's Center for Environmental Filmmaking. I also earned a certificate in Video Production from FAMU Film School in Prague, Czech Republic.
