"I tell the stories that are of interest to me." - Ava DuVernay
That pretty much defines who I am as a screenwriter, filmmaker and producer. Just in case you are looking for a little more insight on who I am. I was born and raised in Houston, Tx to a Black American mother and a Nigerian father who’s favorite movies were “Coming to America” and “The Color Purple”. As a child, I loved when my parents would take me to go see a movie. I was able to immerse myself for 90 minutes to 2 hours in a story that was created for me to watch.
Fast forward to today 20+ years later I decided to enroll into a local community college where I took a class in screenwriting and the rest is history in the making. I have always been in the creative writing world, but never in a million years I thought I was capable of doing what I do now. Life seems as though it has come full circle.
I am currently producing a short film I wrote called “Facing The Truth” due for release in the summer of 2018. I’ve teamed up with a local director to work on a feature film that is set for production in June of 2018. I am also working on writing a web series. My mission is to tell stories that will make you laugh, think and transcend barriers. Plus, help other filmmakers tell stories that reflect the world around us.
