Erica moved to Los Angeles from Oakland, CA to come up the industry ranks with internships at Spyglass Entertainment and HSI Productions, serving as an assistant at PRETTYBIRD, and as an executive assistant for Academy nominated director, Michael Mann. Erica spent six years learning the industry from the ground up before becoming a full-time director, which is what she does today. 

Most recently, Erica became one out of six fellows handpicked out of 400 applicants to be apart of the Commercial Directors Diversity Program (CDDP) - a fellowship created with the Association of Independent Commercial Producers (AICP) and the Directors Guild of America (DGA). She was also chosen for SHOOT Magazine's 16th Annual New Director's Showcase, where her film "POISON" was screened at the Directors Guild Theatre in New York.

Erica's background in cinematography, and love of art, influences her rich cinematic style. Inspired by her Oakland roots, Erica aims to create work that reflects the diverse community in which she grew up.
