Describe yourself: Driven, determined, focused​

Most important thing I’ve learned so far in my major: Every moment in life holds a story. As a filmmaker, it's up to me to figure out how to tell it.​

Can’t live without: Collaborating with other passionate filmmakers. You can’t make a great film alone.​

I’m most proud of: My ability to craft a film to communicate a specific story or mood​

Favorite place at DePaul: Digital Cinema lighting stage​​

Favorite academic project: Working as collaborating director, producer and editor on the student film, L’espoir

Favorite quote: “If you want something, nothing is impossible” – Jean-Louis Blondeau, from the film Man on Wire​​

Best place to study on campus: As long as I have a camera, I can study anywhere.​​

Thin crust or deep dish? Deep dish. Pequod’s Pizza, anyone?​

Favorite hobbies: Besides filming, I enjoy running, cycling and swimming. I have to relieve my stress somehow!​​

Favorite book: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald​
