in Communications from Virginia Commonwealth University and was the recipient
of a 2012 Artist Residency at Kala Institute of Art and a 2011 Affiliate Artist
Space at Headlands Center for the Arts. Her videos, installations and live

American culture. “Pen Pals,” her upcoming film, is based on childhood memories

public venues including the Moth, National Public Radio, Film Independent &
the Los Angeles Film Festival’s Shorts Series.
