MFA Production Student

Emily is a filmmaker who lives and works in her hometown of Austin, Texas. She studied Political Science at the College of William and Mary and worked in environmental education and conservation before her love of film and non-fiction storytelling took her to Duke University's Center for Documentary Studies. 

Freelancing in reality tv and documentary film ever since, Emily is drawn to stories of motivation, change, and hope.
