ABOUT VANESSA

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

 

I'm obsessed with telling queer, women/femme-centered stories & 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'm based in New York & work here, in Los Angeles, & wherever else a shoot takes me.
