A filmmaker, Green Producer and environmentalist with roots in climate storytelling and activism, who has produced/directed two award-winning climate-focused short films.

I am a filmmaker and environmentalist with roots in the climate storytelling space. I work as a Green Producer for Stranded Astronaut Productions, an artist collective and production house that specializes in independent productions and client projects for environmental and social impact organizations.

I have experience advising on numerous Apple TV+, HBO, and Amazon film/TV productions as a Sustainability Coordinator, and have produced/directed two award-winning climate-focused short films. My producing debut, cli-fi short Stomach of the Earth (2020), focused on anthropocentric themes and environmental ethics, winning the Friday Harbor Film Festival's Laszlo Pal Emerging Filmmaker Award.

My most recent film and directorial debut, Gen Z Mental Health: Climate Stories (2022), created a digital mosaic of perspectives from young adults from across the globe on their fears of the future and tools for emotional resilience, winning the Social Impact Award at A Show for A Change Festival.

I have a penchant for combining my passion for preserving the environment and fighting for a better future with my love for storytelling and film.

Outside of my filmmaking work, I am also heavily involved in the activist space, encouraging local and global climate action through creating the annual Hollywood Climate Summit Take Action Guide and conducting Climate Ambassador Network Training Sessions.
