I am a third year Columbia University Film School student, currently working on my thesis project. I work at a major cable news network in addition, and have been in the field of journalism for 10 years. I graduated summa cum laude from Brown University, double majoring in Modern Culture and Media and English and American literature. I have lived in New York City for over 20 years, and my mother was an original New York, born in South Carolina, but raised in the old, real Brooklyn from the age of five years old. I have a tough and realistic spirit, and a deep respect for other people's feelings, perspectives, and personal property. I love fashion and design, sometimes furniture and objects more than clothing, although not to implement too many aesthetics in my own life. This is more of the lens through which I view the world. My only color is black. Is there any other color for a filmmaker?
