Hometown: NYC born and raised.
Fave book of ALL time: Definitely Harry Potter… tied between Prisoner of Azkaban and The Deathly Hallows. Don’t make me choose, it changes on the daily.
Person who inspires me the most: My grandmother is definitely the person who inspires me most. She’s had a lot of love then a lot of loss in her life and is still kicking.
What made me want to become a writer: I’ve always wanted to write in some capacity, I think Harry Potter first made me want to write, but Joss Whedon and Shonda Rhimes first made me want to write TV. I remember watching the Code Black episode of Grey’s Anatomy and predicting a big moment and thinking “I want to come up with stuff like that!”
Music I listen to when I write: ”Electric Lady” by Janelle Monae to get me pumped, then maybe some “Pure Mellow Jazz” playlist on Spotify. It’s taken me way too long to realize that songs with lyrics aren’t conducive to getting work done, I keep singing along!
Fave place to work: Still working on finding a great space, but there’s a South African themed cafe near my apartment that has proven a good place to be productive. Maybe when I can afford a desk chair, it can be my living room. Writers I look up to: Shonda Rhimes, Joss Whedon, JK Rowling, Neil Gaiman.
The title of my memoir would be… Life’s A Binge: Chronicles of a TV Junkie
