  • Contact Information:


I taught high school in Jamaica for a number of years .  I have written a number of skits and poems for performances in my native country. Recently I decided to move to Canada to do what I have always wanted to do ,which is writing and creating content for television. I recently completed a diploma in Children’s Media Production at Centennial College. I am now  writing scripts for a digital preschool show in development and working on developing my own content.



I weave tales that capture the imagination through relatable characters who occupy vivid universes. I believe in creating  relatable diverse characters, especially for children, that allows them to see themselves  reflected on screen.
