I’m a Toronto/GTA-based screenwriter who can write within both the crime drama and dramedy spheres. I’m currently in the latter end of my Associate Degree in Script Writing for Film and TV at the Toronto Film School. I do intend in participating in the CFC Bell Media Prime Time TV Program in the latter end of 2024, once applications open. Within drama, my near-future drama pilot “Back To Sleep” became a Filmmatic Drama Screenplay Awards Semi-Finalist’ as well as in 2022, where “Back To Sleep” became a FilmmaticPitch Now No. 4 Quarter-Finalist. I have crime drama and dramedy pilot scripts that have garnered some recent industry interest in North America and the EMEA region.
