I am an Afro-Caribbean British American. The embodiment of the Jamaican motto, "Out of Many One People."
As a mixed-race, first-generation American I like to explore identity and the intersectionality of our shared existence. My art examines how we remedy conflict as our lives intersect with other cultures, generations, viewpoints, and with other versions of ourselves as we transition through life. I like to ask hard questions, and see characters wade through shades of grey in search for answers.
My parents read to me growing up, and that's where my love affair with storytelling began. As I got older, this expanded into the world of film. A good weekend always included watching and breaking down a movie with my dad. I longed to not only write for film, but lend my voice and body to the creation of full characters- to be in front of the camera.
But being one of four children and two working parents meant this pursuit would have to stay on pause. So I joined after school theatre clubs, and then in college received my BA in Theatre and Journalism from the University of Florida. With my degrees under my belt, the pursuit of being a professional actress began in earnest. Shortly after graduating I signed with Legacy Talent Group based out of Jacksonville, FL and booked my first national commercial. I worked in the Southeast, earning my EMC status.
Now, Chicago is home. Midwest best, you could say. I love bringing character driven narratives to life with other creatives. For me, the magic of this industry lies in collaboration. In addition to acting, I am a published writer, and playwright. I have had my work produced in Florida, Illinois, Ohio, and New York.
I am proudly neurodivergent.
I am currently SAG eligible and represented by 10 Talent Agency.
