Biochemist by degree, I kicked off my career as a Genetic Research Scientist, Pharmaceutical QC/ Research & Development Chemist, Regulatory Affairs Associate, Pharmaceutical Scientific Consultant, and recruited by the FBI as a forensics Special Agent (my brief, badass moment and truly the nail in the coffin for running).
In 2013 I landed an incredible gig working in the film, game, and trailer music industry as a creative strategist. I created dozens of multimedia collaborations with composers and artists from around the world, fusing my passion for music and storytelling into innovative cross-industry events. I’ve dabbled in storytelling in various forms, from short films, YouTube serials, pilots for streaming media, and music videos, to animated shorts, live performances, anthologies, short stories, and young adult novels. Whether it’s through the pages of a book, or a filmmaker’s lens, I want to move people. We are all stories in the end.
Who am I as a storyteller? I see the magic that surrounds us and the possibilities that live in everyday moments. I push the boundaries of technology and challenge the powers that be. I believe in infusing fantastical fiction with progressive messages surrounding social and political commentary, while delving into the inner workings of the human condition, for well chosen words have the power to influence and evoke change. A sense of humor is paramount in my world, so expect some comic relief. Heartstrings will be pulled with a lyrical touch. Characters will reflect the rich diversity of the world in which we live.
