Artist Statement

As a multifaceted storyteller, I consciously use design, filmmaking, screenwriting, photography, and journalism to create connections and shed light on the unordinary dimensions of people, objects, locations, and of all things that take up space. Within these dimensions, big or small, lies the human condition and their realistic stories, the ones that reflect reality. Through my archivist lens, I desire to create bodies of work that represent innovation while persevering and incorporating traditional (or analog) techniques of all kinds. Balancing both emerging and obsolete media feeds to my ultimate career goal: to protect the work and legacy of Black creators. I also apply this same logic when it comes to the infusion of music within my work. Thus, combining my passion for Black popular culture and various sounds of the African diaspora—specifically hip-hop—to push the alternative agenda of defying Black monolithism. In every project I pursue, active research is the center and most thrilling part of my creative process and how I structure and create images with an abundance of meaning, knowledge, and perspective. I simply strive for the whole story to be told in its truth.

“Wherever I go, I bring the culture with me, so that they can understand that it's attainable. I didn't do it any other way than through hip-hop.”
