Short Bio:I was born and raised in Virginia, where I grew up appreciating the art of storytelling. I consumed stories from books, and from music, but the stories that I consumed from films, have moved me in a way that none of the others could, and it would change my life forever. I can still remember being a kid, playing with my friends and acting out our favorite scenes of movies. I knew then, that I wanted to be a part of telling stories on screen, and that's when the screenwriter inside of me was born. I went on to study screenwriting at Brooklyn College, in New York, where I obtained my Bachelor's degree, with a minor in African-American studies. Now, I am here in my second and final year in UCLA's screenwriting program, ready for what my writing future holds.
Short Artist Statement: I like to write within the genres of drama and comedy. I like to write dramas that tell grounded stories, of tragic or triumph, with an underlying message to society. I write comedy screenplays that can make my audience laugh at social constructs, and still come away with a larger message.
