About Me

Originally from the Bronx, New York City, I'm a freelance screenwriter and director based in Los Angeles, CA. I've earned an MFA in Film/Screenwriting/Communications.

I write diverse and female-driven film and television. My stories are often inspired by real life events. My brand is crime/drama/thriller, historical fiction, & sci-fi/fantasy with a focus on timely, hot-button topics with global appeal. I'm drawn to stories about multi-ethnic people, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, transnational families, and underdogs.

I'm an award-winning director of narrative shorts, documentaries, industrials, and streaming media.

I'm a photographer and amateur boxer who once knocked out an Episcopalian priest in a sparring match.
