ABOUT VANESSA

An award-winning director, writer, and producer of films, web series, and digital content.  I'm currently working in the commercial and music video space in New York City while developing my first narrative feature film. I gravitate to dark comedy and satire that bend towards the absurd. 

 

I'm obsessed with telling women/femme-centered stories and am dedicated to highlighting perspectives that have been historically excluded from the narrative conversation. But I aim to do so in a way that feels as natural as it is to encounter people with experiences different from our own: not preachy but seeking to dissolve  "otherness" often ascribed to marginalized groups. I myself identify as queer.

I'm based in New York, and work here, in Los Angeles, and wherever else a shoot takes me.
