In her short film The Porcelain Bird, Rafael Agustín, a writer on the award-winning Jane The Virgin said, "You did a wonderful job with Buttercup and with setting the mood of the piece. I could really feel the texture with how you lit it and shot it. You did fantastic with the visual storytelling. What a sweet story. Very poetic! The music! My God, I can't tell you how hooked I was to your short film simply based off the piano playing. It was a fantastic use of music!"
