FOUNDER & DIRECTOR

Mutton Media is a boutique production company located in the unceded Coast Salish & Tsleil-Waututh territories, also known as Vancouver, B.C.

“Unfortunately, the clock is ticking, the hours are going by. The past increases, the future recedes. Possibilities decreasing, regrets mounting.”

― Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance


“I founded Mutton Media in the summer of 2020. The goal was to create a company to lift underrepresented voices.

My first film Hear Me to See Me, was one of four films to win Experimental Forest Film’s inaugural New Works Grant for black filmmakers. Shortly after, I wrote and directed be•long, a 5 minute film for Voices With Impact 2021, alongside 10 other talented filmmakers.

These two opportunities led to my third film being funded by the Indigenous Screen Office’s solidarity fund, to create our documentary film Say My Name [working title] that focuses on the racism that women of color face in the hospitality industry.

When not working on films, I’m thrilled to announce my co-host Mahkeebah and I have a podcast coming! That’s Trash, a part of Telus Storyhive’s podcast program will premiere in September of 2021.

As a small production company, I’m proud to share that these opportunities have allowed me to hire a team in which:

71% identify as non-white

57% identify as female and

14%  identify as non-binary.

We cannot wait to continue telling stories.”
