Originally from Cape Town, South Africa, I moved to Miami, FL in 2002. Upon completing the Magnet Theatre program and graduating from Dr. Michael Krop Snr High in 2008, I moved to New York where I enrolled at New York University for Performing and Visual Arts and went onto finishing my degree in Screenwriting at City University of New York: Brooklyn College.
I love the art of storytelling and have an eye for photography. My specialization is in development and writing. I'd like to direct my work in production in the near future and collaborate with a team of like-minded individuals who both love and excel at what they do.
