Science in entertainment not only stirs interest and enthusiasm for the sciences, it opens doors to powerful storytelling. I help creators harness authentic science as a creative tool, aiming for what I like to call ‘believable un-believability’ in fiction. I advise on screenplays, novels, and other entertainment/media projects, and am a member of the Hollywood organization Women of Color Unite (WOCU).

My work lies in the early stages of a project, during writing and ideation. I’ve guided numerous creators on their screenplays, short stories and book series, and have been an adviser on technical advertisements for Lenovo.

  • Rapid-fire World-building Session:  A brainstorming session to flesh out the science/technology system of your fictional world. The session consists of rapid-fire questions to help you think on your feet and get your creative juices flowing. Time: 1 hour session via voice or video call.
  • Manuscript Evaluation: Assessment of your science/technology system through believability testing. My report includes identification of holes such as potential paradoxes for time travel stories, and sci-fi cliches such as radiation yielding superpowers. Additionally, I pose questions and raise ideas related to potential avenues you may want to explore to further solidify your system and make it more believable. Time: 3-5 days.
  • In-depth R&D: Research and development for a specific topic in order to create and build your science/technology system. This consists of my conducting in-depth research via reputable sources such as scientific journals, and communicating with subject matter experts when required. Time: a few weeks to a few months, depending on the project and scope of work.
