I am a writer/ director specializing in stop-motion animation. I have been a visual designer practically all my adult life. Accepted into HBO Max | Warner Bros Discovery Access Animated Short Program, I just completed writing and directing an animated short called 'Welcome to 8th Street'.

I had some success as a fashion designer in my previous career back in NYC but always yearned for more. Becoming a mother to an awesome girl made me grow a big heart, and pushed me to challenge myself creatively, resulting in my switching over to the animation industry.  

As a Project Involve Fellow and a recipient of the LAIKA Animation Grant, I wrote and directed an animated short, 7LBS 8OZ, which won the Grand Jury Award for Best Animated Short at the 30th annual Florida Film Festival in 2022 and qualified the film to be eligible for 2023 Academy Awards. 7LBS 8OZ is distributed through New Yorker Screening Room. 

I am currently an MFA student at USC graduating in '23 working on a dark comedy stop-motion short called THE NECTAR INSTEAD, and in desperate need of a vacation.
