Being a female chief lighting technician in a male dominated film filed is definitely not easy. Is mentally challenging and physically also. The lessons I learned is don’t let any negative thoughts get inside your mind while you on set. Trust your skills, don’t be shy to ask, always be humble and be corporative. The communication is also the key

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Chicago. I think that’s my dream city. The rythme of the city just very on point. Not too lay back not too busy.
