Hey, I'm Shanay!

Los Angeles, California

Hi family, friends, and world! A few years ago I made the choice to step outside of my box. I made the choice to do away with small thinking and challenge myself to pursue all things that I was passionate about. By trade I am a Marriage and Family Therpist, but in the last two years I've returned to my roots of writing. I wrote, directed, and produced my first short film in 2019. Since then, I've been continually writing and now I'm getting ready to film my first ever webseries this year.
