In 2010, one of the songs from her first EP was featured as the theme song for the Spike Jonze short film, “I’m Here”, and won the award for Best Original Music at the AICP Awards. This was the turning point for her career as she realized that scoring films was her true passion.

Since then she has scored seven films with award winning filmmakers in all sorts of genres. Her most recent film, 37 seconds (dir. Hikari) won the audience award at Berlinale.  Right before her two films, Selah & The Spades (dir. Tayarisha Poe) and This is Personal (dir. Amy Berg) premiered at Sundance.  Last year, she scored the critically acclaimed film, Skate Kitchen (dir. Crystal Moselle, starring Jaden Smith).
