I have a big heart and I believe media has the power to change the world. I want to be a part of projects that have women of colour, LGBTQ+, d/Deaf, disabled people in leading roles in front of and behind the camera. Currently, I am working on a web series, based on a one person show I wrote and I hope to work as a producer, writer and performer in projects that show the complex realities of folks who sit at the intersections of marginalized identities.
