About

I am an award-winning writer and filmmaker. I graduated from the Carleton School of Journalism and the Norman Jewison Canadian Film Centre Prime Time TV Program.

I won the Raindance Live Ammunition Pitching Competition with my psychological thriller Entwined in 2015 and was short-listed for Geist Magazine‘s Can’t Lit Without It CanLit Short Story Competition in 2016.

I work as a writer, story editor and development consultant in television.  Some of my credits include:  The Property Brothers (HGTV), Mayday (Discovery & Nat Geo), The Secret History of Knitting (Makeful), The Family Restaurant (Food Network), and The Very Good Adventures of Yam Roll in Happy Kingdom (CBC, Cartoon Network).

My films have been broadcast on Canadian and Australian television including Telling Lives, Hello Dolly? and Who’s Afraid of Happy Endings? which delves into the art and business of romance novels. It premiered on Bravo and has since been distributed worldwide.

I won the Reel Asian International Film Festival “So You Think you Can Pitch” Competition for Travels With My Brother (co-directed with June Chua) that depicts the unique relationship I have with my autistic brother and uses animation to show how he perceives the world around him. The film has since been screened in festivals and won awards around the world.  I won the Shaw Media Fearless Female Director Award (National Screen Institute Online Film Festival, 2012).

I co-created the supernatural action drama Maiden (2 scripts & bible available) and a half-hour comedy series The Dating Rituals of the Beta Male with Felicia Brooker. I recently finished the pilot for a Victorian era thriller Second Sight (pilot script & bible available) and a web comedy Coma Girl (script available).  My sci-fi action drama Near Dead (co-created with Matthew Cervi)  is in development with Mad Samurai Pictures.

I’m currently in the early stages of writing my first genre fiction novel.
