i write and make films when i'm not acting.

inspired by my mixed background, i use offbeat comedic tones to tell stories about women, underrepresented groups and the oppressed. 

 

as a writer i was part of VAULTS New Writers Programme 2020 (mentored by Guleraana Mir), long listed for Sphinx30, and a £30k finalist with The Pitch Film Fund.
