Here you’ll find samples of my original works of screenwriting. Original television pilots, webseries, short films, and feature films are all represented. As a note, I like pointing out upfront with all of my works how dedicated I am to bringing diversity to Hollywood. Even if the descriptions of these scripts don't mention the main characters' races or sexualities, the majority of my stories feature non-straight women of color in the main role(s).
ORIGINAL TELEVISION PILOTS
Kala is time, personified, a creature only seen in myth. And everyone wants to either use or destroy her power.

Two problems arise: firstly, only Time should be able to move forward and backward. And secondly? The only way for someone else to become Time is to kill the current personification and take the power for themselves. So who is Melinda and, in her future, what has happened to Kala?
