Erin moved to New York City in 2007 and joined activist video collective Paper Tiger Television where she collaborated on multiple social documentaries and learned how to shoot and edit.

She has since built video departments for creative organizations from the ground up and directed commercial projects.

Her Masters thesis film, "Thunderbird's Nest", premiered at Anthology Film Archives in 2013. The film compelled Werner Herzog to accept her into his Rogue Film School where she planted seeds for the film she's just completed: "See You Now". The film also stars her father, with whom she has made several short films.
