Salaams! I am a filmmaker, playwright, performance artist, and ASL poet.
I have been chosen by the St. Louis Visionary Awards and St. Louis Grand Center as "Emerging Artist of 2016" to honor my works as an emerging artist in the arts scene! I am blessed to receive this great honor. The award ceremony will take place on April 2016. You can read my blog for upcoming information.
I was trained at London Film Academy in London, UK. I write, direct, and edit films. A few of my short films have been screened at film festivals around the world, including Tribeca Cinemas in New York City. Roger Ebert once wrote about me in his popular newsletter ("The Ebert Club Newsletter") and praised my works.
I write stage plays, some of which were produced with funding from the Arts Council of England; they have been staged at Tristan Bates Theatre, Theatre Royal Stratford East, and Soho Theatre (all in London, UK).
I write and perform poetry using American Sign Language, multimedia, music, mime, storytelling and dance. I have been performing onstage since 2012.
