My intention is to tell stories that motivate, raise awareness, and alter the world for the betterment of mankind. I accomplish my goals organically through discernment in my collaborations, building sustainable relationships, and producing quality work. I seek others that are like minded in integrity, with clear intention, and sound in purpose.

I was born in Arizona and was raised on the country's largest Native American reservation, The Navajo Nation. My parents were teachers on the 'rez,' and encouraged creativity. My mother is a veteran photographer of 30+ years, and my father is a Smithsonian-recognized silver smith.

Starting my professional career in entertainment first as an editor shaped the way I direct to this day - with a clear vision of a project's needs before production begins. This lead me to work with such industry moguls as Marta Kauffman and Quentin Tarantino; my work has earned a Grammy nomination, its place on the Oscar's short list, and most recently a Telly Award for United Film House's first commercial production. Most recently, my scripted show "La Woman" was bought and is in development with MTV.
