Biography

I have been working in film for seven years, and during that time I have produced 27 short films, which have been shown and placed at festivals such as Toronto International Film Festival, Gimli Film Festival and Toronto Queer Film Festival.

As an Indigenous queer two-spirit person, I know how important it is to see different kinds of stories onscreen and I prioritize working with marginalized peoples to help them tell their stories. I have worked in local, rural and remote Northern schools, as well as with local organizations like New Directions, Resources for Adolescent Parents and Transition, Education, Resources for Females teaching video production workshops. I have developed and delivered tailored the curriculum to each group or school.
