I became involved with Tomaquag Museum in 2020 following COVID. I had just moved back home and needed a job. Before joining, I worked as a script analyst for film production companies. The museum hired me and placed me in their media and marketing department where I help advertise and promote events. More recently, we have been creating some short docu-series focusing on Indigenous life in New England, specifically Rhode Island.
My filmmaking goals for Tomaquag Museum are to create a small production company highlighting Indigenous filmmakers and create films featuring and created by Indigenous artists.
I’ve always loved movies since I was a young girl. I was an only child and I learned to entertain myself with my overactive imagination. Originally, I wanted to be an actress, but I was too shy and kept that dream to myself. Following college, I decided to take the risk and apply to film schools. It paid off because I was accepted into Loyola Marymount University where I studied film and television production in their graduate program. In 2016, I packed all my bags and my camera and left for LA to make my dreams come true! I graduated in 2020 with an emphasis in directing. While there I made six short films and worked on about 50 other short films. I also worked on my first feature Let’s Scare Julie and I had a few internships with some production companies. One of my internships allowed me to travel to the 2022 Cannes Film Festival! I hope to go again!
My favorite shop is Christina’s Ltd. in Westerly. I love fashion and they have beautiful clothes. I also love The Cafe which is nearby – the food is delicious and after shopping at Christina’s, it’s a great place to relax and have dinner. I also love Matunuck Oyster Bar, George’s of Galilee, and The Mooring Seafood & Kitchen Bar in Newport. I love seafood and I love to eat!
