Tell us about yourself:
I’m an artist & filmmaker currently living in largo,FL.
I love the art of storytelling & if I can incorporate blood & guts I’m a happy camper!
Why do you dig horror?
I love the suspense & the creative ways people get killed. You’re awaken when you realize your darkest nightmares are able to be turned into reality.

How has being a woman in the industry helped / hurt you?
Although male dominated I haven’t experienced too much prejudice or adversity. I’ve had the privilege of working with some amazing people.It’s about surrounding yourself with people who fan your flame & support you. However, I know quite a few ladies who have had their fair share of struggle. Always support your fellow sister. We got to uplift each other.
Tell a woman who wants to get into horror something you wish someone had told you.
Don’t be afraid of failure. It doesn’t matter how inexperienced you are or how terrible your movie is. If it’s something you love & are passionate about Do It or you’ll end up 35 wondering why you spent the last 15 years in a job you hate.
