Hello, I’m Tasha and obsessed with Story. My background as a documentary filmmaker informs my work as a commercial director and love sharing stories of real people. My secret sauce is coaxing the awesome out of you. I work with brands to engage and connect on a deep emotional level. My approach is to start with the values of company and capture unique authentic moments that reflect those values in meaningful memorable ways.My career began with David Lynch on Lost Highway, I went on for a brief stint in Development at Columbia/Tri Star Pictures. I learned from many of the most celebrated directors, Wim Wenders, Gurrinder Chadha and Peter Baldwin for over a decade as a Script Supervisor on numerous feature films and episodic television series.

My first film, The Smith Family won a DGA Award and was nominated for an Emmy Award, which allowed me to be chosen by Filmmaker Magazine as the #1 Face of 25 Hot New Faces to Watch in Independent Film and was also featured in MovieMaker Magazine in the cover story Fiercely Independent Women.

I had a riot making my first narrative film, Picked through AFI’s highly prestigious Directing Workshop for Women. Working with actors, I was able to dig up my skills as theater director, which is where it all began, in the humble small mining town of Magna, Utah.

Today, I live in Venice, California. When I’m not directing, I can be found scooting about with my latest passion; my one year old daughter, Cora. Or we might be plotting and planning volunteer vacations in remote corners of the world like Thailand or Africa.

Plus most importantly, I’m easy going and I believe having fun on set is just as important as creating outstanding work.
