Marushka Jessica Almeida is a Toronto based screenwriter/musician. Indian born and Bahrain bred – Marushka was on her way to becoming a South Asian’s parents’  wet dream – a chartered accountant.

She soon came to the realization that all accountants eventually come to – that death is sweeter! So she took the leap and gained a post-graduate certificate at Humber College for Writing and Producing for TV and Film, transitioning from corporate to creative.

 When Marushka isn’t swimming in a whirlpool of existential dread – she’s either sparking debates on Twitter or complaining about why public nap areas don’t exist.



I love anything off-kilter and dark.

Tragedy and death make me laugh – no joke.

Currently in development with a show pertaining to a real family tragedy – yep, it’s a dark comedy.
