Look me in the eyes when I laugh. Look at our Black bodies that aren’t just bodies and our Black laughter that will never know death, even when we do. Even if we do.

I find myself to be a person with many thoughts and opinions. Ironically, I sometimes lack the words to articulate what I wish to share in the most expansive way possible. In looking for a solution to this conundrum, I found a new love in video and videography. Images and the emotions they convey have never failed me and have allowed me to communicate my feelings when words fall short. My project, Full Body (Laughter) is a love letter to the black community and my new passion for video and film.
