Hi, I’m Talisa.

As a writer, I'm focused on developing material for the screen. I'm currently pursuing an MFA in Film & TV Writing at Stony Brook University in Manhattan, directed by Alan Kingsberg and Killer Films’ Christine Vachon.

As a consultant, I help product and marketing teams organize their thoughts, incorporate user research into their processes, and create compelling narratives. 

I'm co-founder and Community Director at Self Evident, a podcast taking on what it means to be American through Asian America's stories.

I run Last2Weeks, a participatory newsletter designed to help my peers stay politically and civically engaged for the long haul. Join us!

Johannesburg-born and California-raised, I'm usually based in Brooklyn.
