Biz is an Emmy award-winning director, documentary filmmaker, and fixed-line videographer. She pursues projects exploring narratives not often recognized in mainstream media and strives to use storytelling as a tool for social/environmental activism.
She's currently working on the film and video team at The North Face, but she began her career at a grassroots, social innovation nonprofit where she was introduced to community organizing and systemic design. Combining this knowledge with her love of filmmaking in 2016, she grew a deeper emotional awareness of visual media and began collaborating on films celebrating underrepresented themes and identities.
