Born and raised in New York, Rojé began her career at the New York Daily News, where she wrote for the lifestyle publication BET Weekend Magazine.

She established Breaknight Films shortly after her move to Sydney in 2009 to develop and produce projects across a range of formats, including television, print, and audio.
