At Reseda High School I
majored in still photography with H. Warren King and I was accepted into Cal Arts
& Art Center, but I was pretty wild & crazy at the time so I decided to become
a ballet dancer instead. After seriously studying Ballet & Music for 4 years,
I realized that this could take awhile.
then took a class in "The History of Cinema" at Los Angeles Valley College
and was so inspired by Un Chien Andalou and Beauty & The Beast,
that I started making my own films. My 1st film was called Ant Farm, and
was shot in Super 8, B&W. At the time I worked as a paste-up artist for a month
and earned $400 to buy a Canon 1014 Super 8 camera to make Ant Farm.
After completing the program
at L.A.V.C. I enrolled the cinema program at Los Angeles City College. The teachers
& staff were extremely supportive and enabled me to be very creative & make 7
more 16mm surreal fantasy films! My films have since screened at numerous film
festivals & museums worldwide.
