Education: I am one of three inaugural students to graduate UCLA’s School of Theatre, Film & TV (TFT) with a bachelor’s concentration in Producing. As an undergrad student, I studied both MBA and MFA coursework at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management and Producer’s programs before graduating with her bachelors in Film. Shortly after graduation I had the honor of becoming a Film Independent Fellow as one of six producers in their international Project Involve fellowship.

Moved here: 07/19 from Los Angeles, CA

Civic Interests: I'm interested being of service in the creative, branded, and sports communities here in Portland. I believe in mentorship, championing others, and being championed. I'd like to find a way to give back to at-risk youth while incorporating the arts. Professionally, I'm interested in building new relationships and being mentored too.
