At the young age of 2 years old, I was first introduced to
Cinema and I've been hooked ever since. Back then I had to
lean sideways and sit on mom’s purse to be able to see past the
unbelievably tall person sitting in front of me. My passion was
evident, and this led me to pursue filmmaking. I made my directorial debut with “Escape Party”, (2021, USA) a short film about the worst team of players you could put together to play in an escape room. 

“Escape Party” was the winner for "Best Short Short Film" in the Paris Independent Film Festival, winner of "Best Cinematography" in the Feedback Under 5 Minute Festival winner of "Best Ensemble Cast in Austin Micro Film Festival, and placed as a Semi-Finalist in The Couch Film Festival, with the amazing ensemble cast nominated for “Best Cast” and I having the fortune to win the award for “Best First Time Filmmaker”. It also was an Official Selection for the Berlin Flash Film Festival,  MicroMania Film Festival, 300 Seconds Film Festival, Los Angeles Television Script and Film Festival, and Chain NYC Festival.

In the spirit of making a film about puzzles, I hid "a clue" in this biography. Happy searching!
