I started in the Motion Picture industry in 1986 in the IATSE camera department, and as the first female Director of Photography in the union of International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employees (IATSE) 669.
My directing career began with commercials for clients such as Apple, Microsoft, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the Ministry of Tourism- Trinidad, W.I.,. Then advanced to Toyota Costa Rica (18 video webisodes), a web series, “Rock Star Cooking” (host Bif Naked), “Green Baby” (children’s series), Getty Images Motion Picture Assignments (1100+ clips curated) and “Pave the Road”, a feature doc (release 2020). My 20+ years of Camera Operating on union films has given me extensive technical knowledge and understanding of story. I am fortunate to have worked with A-list filmmakers, talent and producers with Warner Bros., Merchant Ivory, Disney amongst others.
