(They/he) is a genderqueer medical school dropout turned award-winning ‘agent of imagination’ as a TV writer, poet, and performer.
Born and raised in Cameroon, Central Africa, then blossomed in the DMV (Piscataway Land), PAGES loves battle-horror anime, mumbo sauce and fried plantains as much as crafting poems, character-driven high-concept scripts, and experimental projects. Their work and creative approach is fueled by their cultural and immigrant experiences, magical realism informed by mythology, folklore and hood fantasy, and a Black Queer Liberation politic rooted in Toni Morrison’s words, “the function of freedom is to free someone else.”
After over a decade in the Arts and Education nonprofit and corporate events programming sector, PAGES moved to L.A. to further their multi-hyphenate career primarily as a Drama writer, starting with the emerging screenwriters fellowship TRIBE by Amy Aniobi at the production imprint Super Special. They also hold fellowships at Circle of Confusion Writer Discovery, Artist DISRUPTORS by Center for Cultural Power, Define American, and Callaloo Writers at Brown University.
When not writing, in development, or working as a lead Story Expert with TPP, PAGES tours nationally as part of an acclaimed all Black burlesque cast, a 3x poetry slam champion and world-renowned spoken-word artist. A 2020 Google x Guardian Rising Voices awardee, they’ve authored two award-winning collections of poems, has a TV Fantasy Drama in development at ITV & Circle of Confusion, wrote and created for Keke Palmer’s KeyTV imprint, and was a recipient of the 2022 TRIBE Short film prize for their short “Seven Minutes of Heaven?” garnering multiple laurels including CANNES and Micheaux Film Festival.
PAGES is repped by Antonio D’Intino at Spectre Vision and attorney Sloan Whiteside. You can find them on the app formerly known as Twitter @pagesofle.
