After graduating from Berkeley, I was immediately adopted into the film scene in Oakland and SF. Through my agency, ONX, I organized twenty creatives in the Bay to help me develop my first short film, Copper. It gained traction after the film collective, The Black Aesthetic, screened it at the Nook Gallery. Since then my films have shown at the Black Smithsonian, San Francisco Museum of the African Diaspora, Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, Stanford University, Ann Arbor Film Festival, New School in New York, and the Black Radical Imagination Film Tour. Currently, I’m working on my first two feature length films: Post Daddy Issues and 818.
