I co-wrote the feature film Margarita, which became a popular indie romantic comedy on Netflix in 2014 and, since 2013, has played at some 100 film festivals around the world, garnering nine awards including Audience Favourites for Best Feature.

Currently, I’m at work on a one-hour TV pilot in association with an LA production company and co-writing a feature film with Margarita directors Laurie Colbert and Dominique Cardona. This will be our fourth collaboration as I also story edited their first feature, Finn’s Girl, and their Genie-nominated short, Below the Belt.
