“Formerly described by the state as an “at-risk youth,” Los Angeles native, Tasha began writing jokes at the age of fourteen; for it was then that she joined the non-profit organization Create Now’s sitcom writing workshop while staying in a juvenile placement facility. Later working in a one-on-one mentorship with workshop instructor and television writer/producer Lisa Rosenthal, (of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Martin, and Head of the Class fame), Tasha’s writing eventually gained her admittance to University of Southern California’s School of Cinema-Television, along with a Warner Bros. Fellowship and work in Hollywood.
She’s performed stand up around the country; and has not only shown commitment to helping those who come from less-than-happy childhoods through her comedy, but has also written a new book called A.W.O.L.: How to Escape the Juvenile Justice System and Experience Inner Peace. Currently, when she is not working on a screenplay that reflects this journey of transformation, she’s looking for opportunities to go into juvenile institutions and speak to at-risk youth about developing a mental attitude that will allow them to improve the quality of their life, no matter where they come from.
