Inspiration
My son Khyan is 3 years old and he inspires me the most. He reminds me to stay curious and be present.
Milestone
When I started directing for television the goal was always to get my own series off the ground so receiving this 150 artist grant for New Country is a big moment for me.
Superpower
I'm incredibly adaptable and good at staying calm under pressure.

Self-Care Ritual
My dog is a one year old Great Burnese so I've been forced to become a walker but it's actually brought me a lot of peace.
