With a long term goal of screenwriting and expanding her production career, Mia is working towards a B.A. in Film from Hunter College. Thanks, in part, to the Covid-19 Pandemic and the need to seek out a creative community, she now works as a social media content creator and instructor for partnered and affiliated artists on the streaming platform, Twitch. A Stage of Twilight is Mia's second film with Cardinal Flix and first as a Producer. Being a lifelong horror fan and seeing parallels coming from a mixed race, adopted family herself, Mia is particularly excited for "Crybaby Bridge" to be her third feature with the company.
