I was born and raised in Newark, New Jersey. Being raised in such a diverse city has fostered a great interest in exploring different cultures and environments. I am currently a film major at Essex County College and anticipate graduating this spring with an Associates of Arts degree in Communications. I started college as an undeclared major but after taking a cinema course I realized that I cannot imagine myself doing anything else. My objective is to carry this passion to ultimately become a documentary filmmaker. Being able to capture captivating culturally diverse stories and share it with a wide scope of people is my ultimate goal.
