I’m an award-winning filmmaker, AR/VR producer, industry speaker, and 2018-19 YBCA Fellow, working at the intersections of documentary, safety, inclusion and fresh, hyper-real media.
I’m inspired by color, the magic of the unexpected and movements that uplift and advance marginalized voices.
As a YBCA Fellow I’m in the cohort exploring and responding to the question: How might we pursue and sustain collective safety? The YBCA Fellows program brings together creative citizens from across the Bay Area for a yearlong process of inquiry, dialogue, and project generation. The results of our work will be presented at the 2019 Public Square, a YBCA signature event.
I’ve funded two projects through Kickstarter, raising over $18,000 total. First, for my documentary short film, New Mo’ Cut David Peoples’s lost film of Moe’s Books, an official selection of the 2016 Mill Valley Film Festival, winner, Best Editing at the Loft Film Fest, and archived at U.C. Berkeley’s Bancroft Library.
Next, for Snow Angel VR, a 360 music video app collaboration with renowned electric Sitar player, Gabby Lala.
In 2015 I started Berkeley’s first VR meetup, OffPlanet VR to connect the city’s creatives and academics exploring virtual reality before the commercial launch of the Oculus Rift in 2016. I produce meetups for East Bay Virtual Reality and ARVR Women and Allies, where I’m a community organizer supporting women and POC to connect, learn and grow. I co-host the group’s “Feature Fridays” show, a weekly livestream from VR using Facebook Spaces.
Oakland born, Berkeley-based. I received my BFA in Film/Video from CalArts.
