TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT YOU WERE DOING BEFORE YOU CAME TO COLUMBIA.

I earned a BSBA in Marketing from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio where I also minored in film and was involved in a lot of student activism.

TELL US ABOUT A PROJECT YOU’RE WORKING ON THAT YOU’RE EXCITED ABOUT.

I’m producing a social thriller about a Black transwoman trying to turn 36. It’s a commentary about the violence Black transwomen face that has led to their low life expectancy of 35.
