She went to Sarah Lawrence College and was trained under project-oriented interdisciplinary education. During her study, she has explored a variety of art forms including animation, literature, dance, etc. After her graduation, she moved to Prague and studied film directing at FAMU (The Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts). While practicing basic theatrical structures, she constantly explored her style and themes. She likes to depict reality with a slightly fairytale-like tone.  Under the influence of mentors such as Bela Tarr and Heather Winters (PGA, AMPAS), she prefers to work with non-actors and observes their characteristics, daily activities, and subtle emotions before combining them into her work.
