...............is a multi-hyphenate creative artist who opens conversations surrounding the connections between philosophy, psychology, and genre, by utilizing the expressionistic movements of Afro-Futurism, Afro-Surrealism, and Absurdism.
Born in Houston, TX, their Southern roots give way to an exploration of culture and literary language that allows them to delve into the facets of storytelling. They further built these tools when they were accepted into the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA), where they found their artistic eye in design -- where they were awarded at the Texas U.I.L State Design Competition -- and acting, culminating into them becoming a Theatre Finalist at the 2018 National YoungArts Competition.
This passion for an interdisciplinary exploration of story prompted their pursuit of formal training and acceptance into the prestigious John Wells Directing Program at Carnegie Mellon University.
