Hey, I'm Dunya!

Los Angeles, California

I have found my joy and purpose in bringing Camp Reel Stories-Los Angeles from Oakland, CA to Hollywood and working with founder Ether Pearl on growing this unique and awesome non-profit.   

I strive to have our new all-girl film bootcamp grow into a year round scholarship program for girls in LA. 


As a 20-year veteran of film and theatre, my work spans both the stage and film as an actor/director/writer/producer.  I attended the American International Schools in hometown Belgrade, Serbia and then in Vienna, Austria before immigrating to California when I was 12.  I'm proud of my banana slug school mascot from UCSC, where I studied Film/Theatre Arts and got my undergraduate and graduate degree.  My first love is acting in theatre immediately followed by film making.  During college I starred in my first feature film, "Voyage of the Heart" which brought me to LA.   While working in front of the camera I also began producing film with a documentary short film "Wyoming's Mystery Dinosaur", and then the feature film "Desert Vows" that I co-wrote, produced and starred in.  I directed the award winning comedic short film "End of the World".  As program director of Camp Reel Stories-Los Angeles,  I found the community I had been searching for.  I love that we give 40% of the girls financial aid.  Thanks for helping us sustain it!
