I am an Oakland, California native, filmmaker, producer, director, cinematographer, photographer, and educator. I attended Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA earning a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, with minors in Art History and Photography. I later completed video production and video editing training at Berkeley City College. Over the past few years my photography and short films have been in national and international exhibits and film festivals. I am also the Youth Programs Manager at the Bay Area Video Coalition where I was previously the Education Coordinator and Social Media for Social Justice Instructor. When not working, I enjoy mentoring for the Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project, volunteering as a teaching assistant at Berkeley City College, writing, biking, and traveling.
“I really believe that people are all planted with the seed of I am here to do something great” – Claudia Rinaldi, Career Girls Role Model
Three things I have learned from Career Girls: “One, that women can do anything, two, never give up and three, we are strong, intelligent and we have the power to change the world by working in the fields that we are passionate about.” – Isobel, Student
