Please introduce yourself. What do you do? Why? What do you want people to know about you?
I am an actress, film producer and casting director. You can catch me in projects on Lifetime as well as the upcoming feature films Elementory starring Big Daddy Kane and Glenn Plummer as well as The in-Law gang with Clifton Powell, Alfred E. Rutherford and many other talented artists. I also have some great projects that I’ve produced and cast this year and just signed on to produce 4 more projects over the next 6 months.
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
At the young age of 23 I was diagnosed with Leukemia and quit working in this field all together. During that time I discovered my love for also working behind the scenes producing and casting . I learned that giving other artist opportunities really gave me joy and also being able to work on a project from the ground up was and still is very rewarding.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do.
I remember when my now deceased mother came to one of my plays . It was then she shared with me that she always dreamed of being on stage but never got the opportunity to chase her dreams. That is the moment I knew that I was doing this for me and my mother . There is nothing like the feeling you get when your living in your passion.
What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through and how did you grow through it?
I’d say the biggest challenge I have had to face was being diagnosed with Leukemia at a young age, taking care of a sickly parent and trying to find my place in my career. It was very challenging at times as a young adult.
Who are the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could elevate your career or business? Why these specific individuals?
Johnny Depp: He is my favorite actor and I love how diverse he is as an artist.
Dany Garcia: I love everything she represents as a female boss, leader, and producer
Alicia Keys: Growing up I struggled to be biracial. I loved the way she carried herself and how proud of who she was. She was also the first concert I ever went to. She was someone who as a young girl I saw was like me and was a beautiful representation of what it was like to be a proud mixed girl in America
