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.

longlisted for Sphinx30

a £30k finalist with The Pitch Film Fund

and shortlisted for the BFI x BMW x Michaela Coel Filmmaking Challenge 2023.
