What do you love about your work?

Feeling like a kid again with my creativity – better than playing with dolls.

What is your vision for yourself, female filmmakers, or the media industry in 2020?

That we don’t have to have “woman” specific events – that there is just more general inclusiveness.

What’s one way you would suggest people “Change the Lens”?

I would suggest more filmmakers give more opportunities to female actresses – maybe ones they have worked with for a while – and suggest they direct or write. I know a lot of doors opened for me when a male filmmaker I worked with on a few projects gave me directing and writing opportunities on his projects.

What advice would you give to a new female filmmaker?

Be fearless with your ideas and self-expression. Don’t try to ‘“fit in.”

Which women in the New England region inspire you?

Too many – Michele Meek would be one!

What film or series are looking forward to watching this year? Why?

I will be honest – I don’t watch enough! I’m looking forward to hopefully attending more festivals!

Attending any film festivals or events, and why you are attending them?

Definitely Shawna Shea as they always have a good ratio of female driven films.

How can your fans find you!?
