Currently homebound in LA, Colette is a member of "Insecure" executive producer Amy Aniobi’s inaugural TRIBE Writers' Program, a talent incubator for emerging screenwriters.

Director Statement

My eccentric comedic sensibilities is thanks in large part to my campy home state of New Jersey, my colorful Latin American family, and the films of Pedro Almodovar and John Waters. "Onions" is about “a dinner gone wrong.” A woman’s romantic dinner plans end on a sour note after her date's unexpected reaction to her "scented" candle. As a filmmaker who enjoys creating complex and off-beat characters that discover their hidden strengths when confronted with a difficult situation, I hope viewers can relate to this character as she finds herself with an insurmountable problem.
