In her early 20s she studied experimental filmmaking under James Benning at CalArts in Valencia, California before working in Hollywood for a few years as a creative assistant to various producers and directors like Vincent Gallo (Buffalo '66) and Don Murphy (Natural Born Killers). Tiring of this, she moved to Chicago to teach filmmaking at the high school and collegiate level.
