Cambridge, Canada

I first knew I wanted to make movies when I was 16.  I saw Raiders of the Lost Ark and said to myself that I wanted to make people feel things through the medium of film.  I started writing, not knowing what I was doing and all these years later I am a self taught screenwriter.  I love the sci fi genre and mixing it with other genres to create fun and different perspectives.  My work reflects my values; female empowerment, finding a place to belong, creating family where you can.  In 2021 I sold two short scripts and received a festival selection for my screenplay 12:01 from the Beyond the Curve International Film Festival. I also run a table read workshop for other writers under my Twitter account @UnicornFilmsLtd, and I do a monthly ZoomCast with a fellow writer and producer @HERCProductions.
