What do you love about your work?
That I get to do what I love with the most passionate creative people I know my team.
What is your vision for yourself, female filmmakers, or the media industry in 2020?
To enlighten people to the fact that women can direct and run production companies just as well as men. For me to continue to grow my production company to further serve the creative community in New England.
What’s one way you would suggest people “Change the Lens”?
To see it as a work of art no gender attached just to take in the beauty of the story and the message offered.
What advice would you give to a new female filmmaker?
Build each other up, walk away when other people want to tear other women down and be the mentor you wish you had.
Which women in the New England region inspire you?
Jan Waldman as an actor and human being and Kristen Lucas as a no take prisoners bad ass off film making.
What film or series are looking forward to watching this year? Why?
The haunting of hill house and 1917. I am obsess with the one take mode of film making.
Attending any film festivals or events, and why you are attending them?
I am attending as many as I can this year to support my fellow creatives, nothing makes me happier than to see my peers succeed in their craft
