"Strong concept with a clear point of view" - Austin Film Festival
** Awarded 2023 NY Screenwriting Fellowship
with Writers Guild East and FilmNation
Acting led me to writing and I wrote THE DIVIDE, a multi-award winning screenplay. As a writer, I was selected for the IRIS Screenwriting Lab at the Athena Film Festival. THE DIVIDE won Honorable Mention in HBO’s UrbanWorld Film Festival, was a Sundance Producer's Lab Finalist, and most recently was a semi-finalist at the Atlanta Film Festival Screenwriting Contest.
My songs have been featured on stage and film, and most recently, I was commissioned to write the theme song for an early childhood education show about climate change.
I am a four-time Writer-in-Performance for the Tribeca Performing Arts Center's Residency where my original songs, spoken word, and plays were regularly performed by the cast and me.
My spoken word, Circus Justice, was published in the Harvard Kennedy School's Women's Policy Journal.
My new treatment, En Root, has been chosen for the 2023 NY WGAE and Film Nation Fellowship. Stay tuned...:)
