Angela started editing video in high school where she was lucky enough to have access to an editing suite at the vocational school. Her interest in the technical aspects of video led her to study electrical engineering and computer science at Vanderbilt University. While at Vanderbilt, Angela played a key role for the top-ranked women's basketball team from 1994-1997. She was selected to play for USA Basketball representing the United States in international tournaments, winning a gold medal in 1994 and a bronze medal in 1995. Angela turned down a position in the WNBA to start her career as a software engineer for Motorola and Sony-Ericsson, where she was a technical team leader coordinating international projects. After a motherhood sabbatical, Angela started her own video production company in 2007. Her love of telling personal narratives led her into documentary work. Angela has recently graduated from Duke University's Center for Documentary Studies.
