Share a practical tip for a woman who wants to do what you do.

Create to live. Write, produce, direct your own projects. Wait for NO ONE to give you an opportunity.

Inspire someone who is not where they want to be in the industry yet.

I try to encourage all creatives to never compare your “success” to others. Just focus on getting your story written, your movie produced!

What scares you?

Human nature and eternity.

What projects do you have coming up?
