Thank you for taking the time to visit my site! When I turned five, I was asked if I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. I thought for a second, then said, "An everything." Well, despite the fact that "everythings" don't actually exist (I was only five), I wasn't entirely wrong. Facts are, I've worked as a disc jockey, dancer, an actress, a personal trainer, jewelry designer, and a singer in a pop group produced by Chuck Lorre. (Yes. That Chuck Lorre.) But now, aside from two amazing human beings I made, I've found my passion lies firmly in filmmaking, where I am motivated to tell stories that resonate, move, touch, and create shifts in perception. For me, writing, producing, and directing feels natural. It allows me to execute the vision that sparked the project in the first place. Some people call me an auteur... but I find the word pretentious. I think five-year-old Susie said it best. I am an everything. :)
