ABOUT

i love

I'm a #femalefilmmaker, writer, mental health advocate, masters swimmer, and amateur cook. Born and raised in Virginia, I moved to Wilmington, North Carolina for college and fell in love with it. I now live in Durham with my partner, Michael, and our beagle and tabby cat.

I love working with people who are passionate about life in all its seasons. A true Gemini, I consider myself both serious and goofy, strong and delicate, a nerd and artist - and I love growing and learning in this creative (yet technical) field.

FAVORITE RECIPE TO MAKE FROM SCRATCH

For me, mental health comes first. Being an entrepreneur demands a certain amount of grit and hustle, and balancing that drive with taking care of myself is a constant journey. Meditation, journaling, and reading are all tools that help me do so - and I love to hearing about other people's strategies too!

At six years old, I began a lifelong love of competitive swimming, something that has defined most of my life. I competed nationally during my college career, and now enjoy biking, weightlifting, and swimming - especially at an outdoor pool! My love for athleticism translates to my work ethic on shoot days and attention to movement and detail.

Athletes of any kind - from local yogi to pro triathlete.

There's a certain kind of magic that happens when you're fully present in your body, and I love being around those who work to find that magic in movement. From dancing in the kitchen to Olympic sports - it's all about feeling grateful for your body and all it can do!

02.

Music - your own personal life soundtrack.

If you were to create a soundtrack for your life, what would it sound like? Mine would probably sound something like this, although it changes on the regular. Nothing gives me that main character feeling like a road trip with a dope playlist - windows down!

03.

"For me, it was books, books, books."

Is there anything better than finding yourself so lost in a book that you don't know how many hours have past? From rich description, tangible characters, heartbreak, laughter, and suspense - books are the ultimate exercise for my imagination.
