Having grown up working and acting in community theatre productions in Indianapolis, Sarah decided from an early age that she wanted to pursue artistic projects further.

She further spent a semester studying Theatre in London before she made her way to New York City. Here, she worked in Advertising and began directing short theatrical projects at local theatres.

While still in college, Sarah also began directing short film projects. Excited by the new freedom she found in film directing, she decided she wanted to study the subject further.
