About Ronika

Stage 32 Community Leader.
Screenwriter. Producer. Author. Co-Founder at Aicearra - Ireland's only Screenwriting Management Company.

I work in Ireland as an independent screenwriter and producer, and actively seek to build a new pathway for Irish talent (both on screen and behind the camera) to be recognized internationally.

Having placed highly in both the Nicholl as well as Austin, I am currently working on 3 features, all of which are slated for release in the next 2-3 years.
