My Native Admission Statement: I am a writer/director working in film and television. I have premiered films at top-tier film festivals such as Sundance, Toronto, Tribeca and South by Southwest, and I have directed episodes of television for HBO, EPIX, TNT and Netflix. My focus is on empathy-centered storytelling, and I work hard to understand the motivations of the characters in every narrative, as I think that helps me and the audience to better understand the people in our own lives.
My Most Challenging Moment?
Every moment when I’m not actively on set directing, because those are the moments when I’m trying to build something new—and that always feels next to impossible.
