Me, My Dad, & You
Me, My Dad, & You is my first ever personal documentary focusing on my arm. It was made while attending the New School, under the tutelage of the famous personal Documentarian Caveh Zahedi.
The film is broken into three separate sections: home movies, found footage, and animation.
I first began working in film as an after school job in high school, editing for a local video production company. After attending UNC - Chapel Hill for two years, I transferred up to the New School, where I studied film under filmmakers Caveh Zahedi and Laurie Collyer. This is where I made my first films, Buffering and Me, My Dad, & You, the latter premiering at the Crown Heights Film Festival.
Since graduation I've lived in New Orleans, India, and Western Massachusetts; worked as a writer, director, editor and producer on multiple short films, as well as finishing multiple feature-length scripts. In 2019, I graduated from the London Film School with an MA in filmmaking. My primary residence is Brooklyn, NY; I also split time between Mobile, AL, and Dharamshala, India.
