REELS / STILLS
I am inspired by myths, folk tales, fiction, poetry, music, my own experiences. Right now N.K. Jemisin and the writers I work with in a writers' room are who inspire me, along with my ancestors.
I grew up with a bluesman-actor grandfather, starting writing, short stories and poetry at an young age. I studied acting, cinema theory, and writing as an undergraduate, and then film and television production as a graduate, at NYU. For a time, I ran a boutique production house and trained in a wide array of visual arts. Finally, landing in L.A., I co-founded a black writers collective and turned my attention to television writing.
