Current career focus is to tell stories by any means necessary through various mediums. I plan to follow my curiosity and explore everything!

Not yet but open to it!

Tell us about your background (i.e., where did you grow up? Past jobs?)
I’m a filmmaker, artist and thought leader focused on inspirational storytelling. My documentary (In)Visible Portraits was recently acquired by Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) and premiered on March 2, 2021.

Prior to creating (In)Visible Portraits, I produced films like Loving and Eye In The Sky at the independent production company Raindog Films alongside co-founders Ged Doherty and Academy Award®-winning actor Colin Firth. I also previously held a seat on the board of the Diversity Committee for the BRIT Awards, where I collaborated on revamping the voting academy and tackling diversity within the music and film industries.
