BlackStar Film Festival

From 2015-2019, I served as a team member for BlackStar Film Festival. Part of my role consisted of coordinating the BlackStar Filmmaker Symposium in 2017 and 2018. 


I'm the Communications/Outreach Manager for percussion ensemble TIMBALONA, and help produce events for their performances.

PHL Latino Film Festival

In 2016 and 2017, I curated the PHLAFF Short Films program sessions. 

Scribe Video Center Street Movies!

I was the Field Producer for Scribe Video Center's Street Movies! program in 2014. I organized six outdoor film screenings in neighborhoods across Philly and Camden, showcasing independent film works that centered communities of color.


As a member of the Collective for Advancing Multimodal Research Arts, I have played a role in both hosting the annual Screening Scholarship Media Festival (SSMF) and the CAMRA Fellows Showcase.

Film Screenings

I have hosted film screenings independently and in partnership with other artists and grassroots organizations.
