Annie uses her experiences as a fourth-generation Japanese-American, emo music aficionado, and product of the MySpace-era as inspiration for her coming-of-age themed feature-length screenplays, television comedy, plays, and prose.
She graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts with a BFA in Writing for Screen and Television, has been recognized by the Austin Film Festival, nominated for the Humanitas Prize’s Angell Comedy Fellowship, and worked on a pilot with Bill Prady, creator of The Big Bang Theory.
She has pitched projects to 20th Century Fox Television and Adult Swim, written two stage plays performed at USC’s Bovard Auditorium, and regularly tables at community open mics. She is honored to also be a contributor of words at www.raincoatmag.com, a space “created, maintained, and curated by womyn, for all.”
