Creative and Operations

I’m an award-winning independent filmmaker whose work has screened at numerous festivals, premiered on HBO/Cinemax, and is available on multiple screening channels online. In addition to my film work, I write short stories, essays, and poems–and I’m a foodie who loves to cook. I grew up in South Jersey, Willingboro specifically, and went to Howard University (Go Bisons!) where I received a BA in film directing. I received my MFA in Dramatic Writing from NYU, and I have a PMP certification in project management.

Strategic Marketing and Public Relations

I’m a seasoned marketing and public relations professional with over fifteen years of experience. I’m a bad ass at creating favorable business-to-consumer relationships for clients who have included Nike, Austin Community College Center for Public Policy, the California Wellness Foundation, the California African American Museum, and the Hip Hop International Dance Championship. Currently, I’m the Administrator of the Theatre Program at Fordham University, Lincoln Center. Previously, I served as a marketing manager on award-winning Broadway and off-Broadway productions, including August Wilson’s Jitney and King Hedley. I received my BA in Theatre Summa Cum Laude from Fordham University in New York, and my MFA degree in Theatre Management from Yale University.
