Context: I first volunteered as an usher at Frameline in 2006, then interned and worked the festival during grad school, and was on one of the shorts screening committees for many years. All of my films have premiered at Frameline and I've met life-long friends and colleagues through the festival. Frameline is where I grew up as a queer person, a trans person, and a filmmaker, and where I began my career as a festival professional. After 7 years running Translations Film Festival and working at Three Dollar Bill Cinema and the Seattle Queer Film Festival, I couldn't be more grateful and excited for this opportunity to come back to my roots and join Frameline's phenomenal programming team.
