Class of 2018
What do you love about your current position or career path?
I love having the flexibility to work on a lot of different projects, and to choose the ones I want to direct. I love working with people on set and I love that I’m in a leadership position and I am able to assemble diverse crews that prioritize women and POC!
How are you using the skills that you learned at Moody in your current role?
I had the opportunity to direct in the RTF program and I got to make films that I really wanted to make. It was a great time to experiment and find my voice. I am still working on my voice and craft every day but the RTF program gave me the building blocks to build my foundation!
What are some favorite stories that you've worked on as director?
I love telling universal stories that people from all backgrounds can resonate with. My favorite pieces to make show culture and feel authentic. I recently made a spec for Casio that’s on my page that I’m super proud of!
Were you involved in student orgs on campus?
I was really involved in student sets. I produced a lot of graduate student pre-thesis and thesis films, and that hands on experience is what really gave me the skills I needed to continue working in the field after graduation. I also was the President of the German Club and a radio talk show host at KVRX!
Network with your peers. To this day the people I work with on my film sets are people I met in the RTF program, they’re collaborators for life!
