Hey, I'm Ashlei!

Hello! My name is Ashlei, I'm a proud Jersey Rican and a lover of sci-fi and musicals. I've worked in the film industry for seven years and I have experience in narrative television, docu-series, indie features, short films, and feature documentaries. When I'm not working or writing, you can usually find me singing karaoke or catching up on my favorite TV shows.
