I am a filmmaker originally from Brooklyn, NY. I am a pioneering member and MFA graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts Asia in Singapore. I also possess a BFA in Dramatic Writing with honors from NYU. My screenplays have been featured in master class workshops led by acclaimed directors Todd Solondz, Joshua Marston, and Shekhar Kapur.
I have worked as a writer, director, editor, producer, and cinematographer on over 30 shorts with premieres at Palm Springs ShortFest, Slamdance, Tribeca, NYU’s First Run Film Festival (recipient of awards for directing, producing, and cinematography) and other screening venues worldwide.
My last short film "Delilah, Before"- about a Singaporean teenager trying to be a responsible parent for the first time to her two-year old daughter and regain her own mother’s trust- was welcomed with a world premiere at 2009 Palm Springs International ShortFest. It has since been showcased at the Singapore Short Film Festival, Women’s International Film Festival in Miami, San Francisco Women’s Film Festival, and won an audience award for Best Short Film at 2010 Tribeca Film Festival.
I am currently traveling the festival circuit with my narrative short film "Rockaway" about a headstrong young woman's refusal to confront her abusive past which leads to a painful reliving of it.
