Students With Stories to Tell
I got my drive to pursue film back in 2017 after watching a terrible movie that altered my perspective on careers so much that I had to get into film. Thus, this is my journey of film making.
Maria has taught in CWU's Film program since 2006. She never gets tired of talking about movies, especially those she considers perfect (such as: Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Sense and Sensibility, and Get Out). She has a fantastic son named Tucker, and as of 10/3/20, a total of three cats.
VP of Administration
I am originally from Kitsap County and, yes, I love the rain. I am a film student by day, and a lazy piece of garbage by night. Currently counting the days until the Seattle Kraken home debut.

Hailing from Bellingham, WA, I am a nerdy lover of movies and television that hopes to turn my obsession into a profession.

I am a senior at CWU, from Yakima, WA. During my freetime I enjoy camping, paddleboarding, hiking, boating, and fishing. When I’m in the great outdoors, I always have my camera with me. I have always enjoyed photography and videography, and my dream is to have my own production company.

Senior at CWU, I’ve had a passion for video production and Filmmaking from a young age. Film is a medium that conveys messages unlike anything else. I’ve developed a strong work ethic that’s helped me with numerous projects, and I continuously work to get better at my craft every day.
I like cameras and making movies!
