I am a director and writer from Los Angeles, California. I seek to create media infused with sociological introspection spanning topics such as religion, romance, and inequality. I received my Master of Science (Msc) in Sociology from the University of Oxford. I received my Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Sociology from UC Berkeley, with Highest Honors, and a minor in History.

My mission is to create socially conscious media to promote compassion and introspection through different perspectives. I also seek to cultivate a certain style of filmmaking: 'holistic video production.' This means that the audience experiences the media's theme not just visually, but also in other dimensions, such as audibly. Red Dress, for example, is a 'holistic portrayal of judgment.' The vocals are out of place, just like the character is out of place as she is met with exclusion from the church insiders, judging her in the pews. Moreover, the vocals being out of place invites the real-world audience to judge just like the church goers. Hence, the real-world audience is brought into the church pews of judgment, partaking in the theme, creating a holistic video experience.

I have written a feature film which is an extension of the "Red Dress" music video, and looking to produce it. Please contact me if you would like to produce my screenplay, work on a music video, or other media project. Join my newsletter below to stay updated!
