Hi, I'm Brit.

I'm an award-winning filmmaker and journalist, currently living in my hometown of Los Angeles, CA.

I graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2016, with a B.F.A. in Film & Television with an emphasis in Directing and am currently pursuing my M.A. in Specialized Journalism (The Arts) at the University of Southern California. I'm their 2017-2018 Sony Pictures Entertainment Fellowship recipient, which is a prestigious award for film criticism which is in conjunction with the Los Angeles Times. As part of this fellowship, I have been personally mentored by LA Times film critic Kenneth Turan, and recently completed an internship in the Drama Development department at Sony Pictures Television.

Currently, I'm working on my Masters Thesis Project, a short documentary about the Atlanta Drag community. On a freelance basis, I write articles for outlets like Ampersand and Film School Rejects, and direct music videos.

My previous short films and music videos have been screened at several film festivals in the United States and Canada including the Atlanta Film Festival and the National Film Festival for Talented Youth. My undergraduate senior thesis film, "Violet", won the Jury Prize at the 2016 Atlanta Film Festival. It also received an award for Outstanding Communication Design from the International Red Dot Awards, which I traveled to Berlin to receive.

The concept of beautiful reality is a major theme throughout all of my creative projects. I like to shine a light on the forgotten or what many would consider unlikely subject matter and showcase it in a way that's beautiful.
