As a filmmaker and writer, I am interested in highlighting the intersections of black girlhood, especially as it relates to sexuality and class. Within my work I hope to create thoughtful conversations on the importance of representation across multiple artistic disciplines. With writing influences that range from novelists, such as Toni Morrison and James Baldwin, to songwriters like Frank Ocean and Solange, I aim to create stories with a lyrical flow that contain strong emotional intensity.
