My road in life took a while to figure out.
Born and raised in New Jersey—my father was a corporate businessman and my mother was a social worker.
Attended Loyola Marymount University, where I received my bachelor’s degree in film production and theater.
I struggled with diversity, discrimination, and underrepresentation in school and in my early career, which sparked my lifelong mission to bridge those gaps through storytelling.
After graduating, I participated in Film Independent's Project Involve, an intensive fellowship for people seeking a career in the film industry.
I started my career working for Tim Burton Productions as the director of development.
Some of my early projects include “But I’m A Cheerleader” and “Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her.”
Founded Duly Noted, Inc., a Los Angeles-based award-winning production company that has produced critically acclaimed films like “Real Women Have Curves,” “Rocket Science,” and “Dear White People.”
In 2015, I joined Matt Damon and Ben Affleck on the reboot of “Project Greenlight,” where I served as the mentor and producer to the winner of the filmmaking competition.
Keep following my journey
