About Todd

We're an optioned, diverse writing team that specializes in character driven sci-fi drama thrillers. Hailing from opposite ends of the globe – Todd is from New York and Irish is from tropical Manila – we share a passion for creating vibrant new worlds inhabited by flawed, likable characters. With backgrounds in psychology, we have participated in seven speculative science think tanks. Those experiences, along with our fascination with ancient mysteries and the impact of technology on the human spirit greatly inspired all of our scripts, several of which made it to the final rounds of notable contests and received strong recommends by top coverage services and consultants. In addition to writing, we're savvy investors always on the hunt for an exciting project to back. We truly enjoy collaborating with highly talented individuals.

Some of our favorite TV shows and films include Lost, Manifest, The Black List, Game of Thrones, The 100, Brooklyn 99, Chernobyl, The Matrix, Batman Begins, Inception, Jumanji, Pan's Labyrinth, Annihilation, Edge of Tomorrow... We'll add more soon. :)
