My creative path is leading me to produce compelling content, known for its informed perspective and diverse teams. I am an assertive proponent of equal opportunity and gender sensitivity in everyday decisions. Every project, colleague, team-member, talent, film project has shaped the person that I am today. And I would like to continue sharing stories that matter. As a woman, I am mindful of the responsibility that rests on my shoulders bestowed upon me, by all the efforts and struggles of the feminists who have paved the path.
