Biography

I am a photographer and filmmaker with a Bachelors degree in Film and Video obtained from Georgia State University. I have a passion for creating visual stories using key principles of photography and cinema. My goal is to inspire individuals to critically think and form their own interpretations after internalizing my work. I set out to create my own lane of art while paying homage to the greats that have come before me such as Oscar Micheaux, Gordon Parks, Steven Spielberg, Spike Lee, and Stanley Kubrick. I am forever an observer of the world and utterly fascinated by the purity and rawness of the human psyche. I'm creatively diverse earning publications in poetry, creative writing and photography; being confined to one form of expression isn't an option.
