Whattup Tribeca!

What an honor.

“Unlocked” has been named a Tribeca Film Festival #TribecaX Finalist in the Immersive category for being one of the best branded films of the year.

Shoutout to our fearless leader and director Jonathan Pearson, my wonderful costars Bianca Gisselle & Lowam Eyasu
the good folks at HP, Giant Spoon, The Lift MX and to every single amazing crew memeber, producer and person involved who had a hand in bringing this crazy entertaining project about data scientists to life.

And shoutout to the GOAT Bobby Deniro for co-founding this incredible festival 21 years ago and giving so many artists a platform to showcase their work to the world.

Much love,



Harlem, 1930. Where the Blues are getting bluer and the gin is running dry.

A free-spirited Cotton Club singer has just been fired with nowhere left to go but down. So, she turns to her best friend, an extravagant costume designer with plans to dress Josephine Baker in Paris. Maybe they can run away together. Or maybe the handsome southerner that just came knocking can offer an even better life. But the saxophone dreams of Harlem rarely end as smoothly as they start.

The legendary Phylicia Rashad directs the fearlessly bold, intoxicatingly seductive, and surprisingly contemporary Blues for an Alabama Sky by Pearl Cleage (Oprah’s Book Club selection What Looks Like Crazy On An Ordinary Day) that’s so ahead of its time, it’s right on time.

Starring the incredible talents of Nija Okoro, Greg Alvarez Reid, Joe Holt, Kim Steele and Dennis Pearson. Casting by Kim Coleman, CSA.

Presented by Center Theatre Group. Opens April 13th 2022 and will run through May 8th 2022 at the historic Mark Taper Forum.

Come get these Blues!!

Where we studying at?

Almost, Maine

Whattup Fam,

I often get asked “Where can I begin to study acting?” or “Where exactly can I sharpen my skills and perfect my craft?“. While I started out studying at a local community college in my hometown, I’ve been very fortunate and have had the great privilege of training at quite a few places on my artistic journey such as South Coast Repertory, Tim Robbins & The Actor’s Gang, Matthew Arkin’s studio, and many more. These are all great options seeking, but today also I just wanted to share and highlight a few of my current personal favorite class recommendations:
