how I found my calling

Ayah is a writer and filmmaker with a lifelong fascination for metafiction. 

Her double major is in Creative Writing/Filmmaking, and in the last several years she's authored (and sometimes produced) several original metafictive stories, including Fearsome Pole, Real Boy: an Allegory, and "Say You're Sorry." She was a producer on the Emmy-nominated documentary Beyond Belief.  Her short film Five Apples Today later led to Delta Phi. 

Ayah's favorite moments in life include opening a new pen and dragging the skinny blue playhead in Premiere Pro. She aspires to write metafiction full time for film, cable, books and VR.
