I am a writer, actress, director from Los Angeles.

I recieved my undergraduate degree from New York University for Film and Televison production. I also studied musical theatre in Los Angeles and now I'm looking to get back into filmmaking here in London.

I've written and directed two web series, both which have won web festival awards. I've also written and directed a short film which was an Official Selection in the San Francisco Black Film Festival.

My original TV pilot, "Noho, PA" won the Teen Nick Young Fellowship and awarded me a development deal with the network. I also wrote another original TV pilot that won the BET Urbanworld Film Festival Teleplay Competition. 

I have experience coordinating and supervising small shoots for Youtube and I'm always looking to collaborate with other creatives. Please check out some of my Youtube videos and don't forget to say hello!
