WANT TO HIRE ME?

Here's a bit about me and my writing style:

 

As an Atlanta native, a lot of my writing is naturally influenced by Black culture and southern flair yet my provocative imagination still allows for me to create worlds without bounds. I love writing ensemble comedies and dramedies for television; and based on my ability to craft character-driven narratives that authentically blend elements of humor and controversy I can easily see myself staffed on shows like Hacks, Bigger, Dave, Blindspotting, or Never Have I Ever.

I have independently written and produced several award-winning short films and web series, some of which have aired on Revolt TV, AspireTV, and Fox Soul. 

Due to the versatility of my independent work, I often get hired to write short-form coming of age and family dramas as well as Drama Features. I've most recently completed a commissioned script for BETHer directed by Kim Fields and a commissioned feature thriller for Mega Minds Media.

 

I am now head writer for season two of the PBS digital series, 'Say It Loud'.

When best friends Phoenix and Tiana find themselves on the edge of expulsion for operating an underground hair care service on school property, they are given the alternative option to join the school’s Business Club where they use their unconventional entrepreneurial skills to revive and lead a team of nerds and misfits to the national business pitch competition, going toe to toe with their more polished counterparts.

Heaux and Tell is a half-hour dramedy that follows the friendship of Cash, Eden, and Noni as they unapologetically dive headfirst into provocative new experiences. No need to beat around the bush (pun intended) this show is about sex, sexuality, and the sexually frustrated liberated.

An Asian-American teen, raised from birth by southern black parents, struggles to defend and redefine her identity after being accepted into a popular HBCU.
