About me

Hello! Thanks for stopping by!

My name is Jimy.  I am a storyteller who works in various mediums. 

I work as a multi-platform writer, creative producer, and director working with clients such as Disney, Super Deluxe, MashableBET Networks, Fullscreen Media, Maker Studios, Freeform, Fuse, IFC, Al Jazeera America, and Nick, Jr

I am also a comedian. My interest in comedy began as an intern for Saturday Night Live, which led me to studying improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade. You can find me performing at stand up and storytelling shows all over NYC & LA! 

I have a BFA in Film & TV production from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. My dramedy feature film screenplay, Meera, was a semi-finalist for the 2016 Sundance Screenwriters’ Lab.

I also love photography and traveling. I hope you enjoyed some of my work here. I'm always looking for an opportunity to pursue both at the same time. Any suggestions on where I should head next?

I grew up in Atlanta, lived in NYC for several years, but currently call LA home. I love mangoes, emojis, & Bey.
