Born in Arizona, I was raised on the country’s largest Native American reservation, The Navajo Nation. At the time, my parents were teachers that ran the Art Department at Chinle High School and constantly encouraged creativity. My mother is a veteran photographer of 30+ years and my father is a Smithsonian-recognized artist.
I’m grateful that starting my career as an editor led me to work with such industry moguls as Marta Kauffman and Quentin Tarantino, and shapes the way I direct to this day. My work has earned a Grammy nomination, been an Official Selection at Sundance Film Festival, and a place on the Oscar's short list.
