Her sound work received a Primetime Emmy nomination for Netflix’s Godless (dir. Scott Frank) and has been nominated four times for a MPSE Golden Reel Award and featured at Sundance, NYTimes, and (a personal achievement), WorldStarHipHop.

Her live performance sound design has been heard at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, The Public Theater, Summerhall, and the World Trade Center’s Oculus. Their favorite sounds are water drops hitting a hot stove, snow crunching footsteps, and a juicy overheard conversation. She believes good listeners make great storytellers.
