I’m currently working on a short documentary about my family and the illusion of the American Dream.

I’m looking to shadow a mentor and to gain experience in entry-level positions, particularly in the writer’s room and editing room. I love to work on films that are impactful and accessible – films with important, compelling messages that connect with large audiences and not just filmmakers.
