I write stories that matter so that the world can begin to understand the necessity for the valuable representation of marginalized communities. I am a queer black woman, and that is essential to how I approach my writing; whether it be through characters, settings, or experiences. All my short films are for sale or free(if we reach a credit agreement). There is value in collaboration, and I am always open to working with other writers, creatives, or producers so we can do the work that needs to be done. Like all writers, I would love to see my work produced so please contact me if you have any questions. 

If you would like to direct/produce one of my short films, please get in touch with me as soon as possible, as a number of shorts are getting optioned!
