"I love telling stories, exploring characters and their headspace and expanding that world beyond the script. I love the wide range of decisions involved in production design and I see every opportunity to explore the range of emotion through architectural details, colors, patterns, lighting and furniture. My goal is to collaborate with other filmmakers with meaningful and multicultural stories that push the boundaries of the imagination."
