As a cinematographer based in Los Angeles I’ve had the joy and privilege to take projects from prep to post with directors including Arkasha Stevenson, Matthew Lessner, Nadine Ijewere, David Henry Gerson, Leigh Davenport, Eloise King, Laury Murphy and Megan Rosati. As a founding member of the International Collective of Female⁺ Cinematographers and former cinematography faculty at my alma mater the American Film Institute, I have a keen interest in the exploration of the ideas and intentions behind the imagery and how it effects the heart and mind of the viewer, as well as a commitment to creating diversity on screen and on set.

I specialize in deep, cinematic images drenched in color, symbolism and emotion. I love shooting on film from super8 to 4 perf 35mm, and frequently bring special techniques honed through years of shooting beauty campaigns to narratives and commercials of all genres.
