Artist Statement

The spine of all my work is the emotional journey of the protagonists. I’m drawn to writing stories from perspectives that are rarely explored. Although I’m primarily interested in telling stories that challenge patriarchal paradigms of black womanhood, I strive to root each of my protagonist’s journeys in a nuanced humanity that people can connect to.

While At Headlands

I am very excited to be working on a new feature-length screenplay during my Headlands residency. This opportunity will give me the time to revise several drafts and the space to workshop scenes with fellow artists.
