What made you want to become a filmmaker?

My father’s a filmmaker so I’ve been immersed in it my whole life!

How and why are you using Lume Cubes in your work?

I love Lume Cube products. I’ve been using them for all run-and-gun shooting for when I don’t have access to wall plugs so need lights that are portable and strong. They’re genuinely awesome, powerful little lights and they’re so handy for every kind of filming and photography.

Did you always want to be a content creator? Or did you fall into it?

I’ve been doing this since I was a little kid so I’m still that little kid. :)

If you could only shoot with ONE lens-type for the rest of your life, which would it be? Fisheye, wide-angle, prime, zoom, macro, or a telephoto lens?

Definitely wide-angle.

What is your go-to camera?

Anything that can capture video.

Any advice for new filmmakers and videographers that are trying to follow in your footsteps?

You have been making short films for a while now, when did you get started doing that and why?

I made my first short film when I was 16 and I did it cause I love it.

Right now.

Coffee or tea?


If you could document someone’s life for a day, who would it be?

You have shared your life through your vlogs and social media, what are 5 things that people don’t know about you?

  1. I’ve been vegan for a year.
  2. I post selfies because I’m insecure.
  3. I'm trying to think of my next tattoo…
  4. I’m currently drinking hot cocoa (and probably will be still by the time you’re reading this!)
  5. People don’t know that I don’t know whether or not they know that I don’t know ;)
