Inspiration
As a New Yorker, you’d be surprised how much inspiration comes from eavesdropping on people’s conversations. A lot of my character development comes from the conversations I’ve overheard.
Milestone
I’ve always wanted my film projects to be selected for a film festival. In 2020 I finally had the opportunity for my short film, Playground to be selected in 6 festivals including the American Black Film Festival.
Superpower
I can find the best food spots, literally anywhere.
Dream Destination
Bora Bora
Beloved Book
Book – The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k, by Mark Manson. Sometimes we put too much emphasis on things that do not matter. This book reminds me that caring less about the little things can make a big impact on my happiness.
Song Selection
The Commander by Kid Cudi
Self-Care Ritual
Every Sunday when the sun goes down, I use only candles to light my apartment.
