Studying Experimental Animation at the California Institute of the Arts, she received her BFA in Experimental Animation and practiced stop-motion under her mentors Paul Vester and Janie Geiser. Concentrating on directing music video, narrative, and commercial work, she continues to direct videos and curate and show at galleries including the Tate Modern, Espacios Ananas, and Werkartz.
