bio

I launched my writing career by creating an online trans media experience for the pop culture smash Teen Wolf. The success of that online experience earned me a Webby Award and a coveted spot in the writers room on the MTV breakout hit show. After helping write and produce a hundred episodes of Teen Wolf, I went on to serve as a writer/producer on Salvation, a sci-fi show for CBS Television and Station 19, one of the latest offerings from Shondaland. I'm currently serving as Co-Executive Producer on the new season of American Horror Story and developing new shows for Disney+, 20th Television, and Bad Robot.

As an independent filmmaker, I've directed three short narratives including Prom, which is currently on the festival circuit, and written An Unlikely Friendship, a feature film about race and female friendship that will be my feature directorial debut. In addition to my own films, I serve as Executive Producer on movies that showcase unique voices and stories. In 2018, Jinn launched to critical acclaim at the South by Southwest Film Festival. My next feature project, Max and Me, will hit the festival circuit soon.

Along with my work in entertainment, I'm a long-time volunteer policy advocate with global anti-poverty agency CARE, and I'm proud to serve on the Board of Directors for Care’s political advocacy arm Care Action. I'm also proud to serve as co-chair of the Think Tank for Inclusion and Equity (TTIE), a consortium of TV writers dedicated to expanding the voice and reach of under-represented peoples in the entertainment industry.
