Who Am I

Then to Now

I was an angsty child who loved to philosophize about New Jack Swing and 90's rap music with my mom's college friends. I grew into a pop and grunge loving nationally ranked preteen cheerleader who turned into an unknowingly socially conscious teenager. I was the kid that needed to speak up and out about everything. Quickly realizing that I was an outspoken artist, I found myself moving towards education and a deep desire to learn about who I am, how I can best serve the community around me, and most importantly... living up to the potential that I know is within me.

I’ve become a mom in recent months. With my baby girl in my arms, I find myself needing consistency and answers for the world around us. Through teaching and creating, I found myself creating Fearless Young Artists Productions. It is here that I can teach, create, develop young artist and produce work that means something to me. Although I am never far from the stage, I am proud to say that I continue to work on Broadway and am making my way into TV/Film.

In my opinion, I’m the perfect blend of what a Gen-Xer is all about... Frustration that equality isn't a given, an understanding that to be Young Gifted and Black is more than just a Nina Simone song - And enough fight in me to inspire a movement within myself and those around me.
