Her first independent documentary film, Soma Girls, was awarded grants from the Center for Asian American Media, and the New York State Council on the Arts, and screened on PBS nationwide in 2012. Her second film, The Dirty Truth About Coal (2011), about the negative effects on public health of emissions from coal-fired power plants, was a 2009 and 2010 Finalist for the Roy W. Dean Film Grant and was used by The Sierra Club’s national anti-coal campaign in 2012. Since then she has produced dozens of independent documentaries and is currently at work on Clexa Is Ours which details the need for balanced cultural representation in television through the voices of queer fans of a post-apocalyptic sci-fi show.
