About Shiv

I am an enthusiastic screenwriter with a passion for writing stories that offer an entertaining commentary on today's society. 

I have a near OCD drive for perfection that lends itself my very detail orientated approach to writing and I am adept in a number of genres. 

I am capable of balancing multiple deadlines, without sacrificing creativity or quality and as per the education section below I have completed several screenwriting classes with notable coaches.

I'm a Marketing Manager by day and a Screenwriter by night. 

I was born in Suva Fiji, raised in Auckland, New Zealand and I currently reside in Vancouver, Canada. 

Aside from writing, I have directed a short and worked as an Assistant Director and Production Coordinator on two other shorts and a small indie project.

I am equal parts a geek and sports fanatic. I love events like San Diego Comic Con and it's New Zealand equivalent, the Armageddon Expo. I grew up reading comics and have amassed a small collection of 700 titles. My top 10 films of all time include:

- Hell or high water
- Saving private Ryan
- The Dark Knight
- Good will hunting 
- The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
- Steve Jobs
- Get Out
- Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation
- Bourne Ultimatum 
- Nightcrawler 

Honorable mentions: Better Watch Out, The Terminal, The Replacements, The Way Way Back, Gladiator, Jerry Maguire, Remember the Titans, Invisible Man, A Quiet Place, Gifted, Sweet Smell of Success, Rain Man, Words on Bathroom Walls, Games Night,  21 Jump Street, Manchester By The Sea, Thor Ragnarok, Guardians of the Galaxy.

I was undefeated as an amateur boxer and I love watching Boxing, the NFL, NCAAF, NBA, NCAAB and NHL.
