A graduate of The University of Texas at Austin Radio, Television, Film program, Michelle founded the Film Camp for Girls in 2007. While producing and directing her first film project, she saw--first hand--how few women worked in film production. This experience led her to create the Film Camp for Girls, a space where young women and girls can learn the nuts and bolts of filmmaking from professional women filmmakers. She currently raises funding for art and art education at The Contemporary Austin and is completing her Masters in Art Education at The University of Texas at Austin.
