My sister, Kathy, has always been an inspiration to me. She is witty, loving, caring a great mother and sister and a creative at heart. We have both come full circle, embracing our creative interests we had at very young ages. I am so happy and proud that she has resurfaced once again creating and sharing her passion of creating art.

In the last few years I have become quite fond of filming the amazing and wonderful people I meet and work with. I like to bring out part of them not only in photographs but in smooth motion. No they aren’t technically perfect, which is how I love to do them! This is the second of my series of videos stemming from my own personal one entitled, ” I AM”, (https://youtu.be/zfxSRwoLwyQ) You can take a look at my first […]
It was one of those days where I felt I needed to create, and so I did! I had a portrait shoot earlier in the day yesterday and I was so much in the groove that I couldn’t let the day end there. It’s about 4 am as I post this…yah crazy I know! I hope you enjoy it and feel inspired!
I finally got the chance to explore video with model Gabriel! This was really not planned for our shoot, but we work so well together I just had to try it out. It has a lot of nicks and bumps, but I am proud of it! I have been dying to get back to creating videos like these. Still got lots to learn but I am ready. Well enough talk. I hope you enjoy it!
Finally got my hands on some good software…I have not learned much on how to use it yet! I generally was just pressing buttons to see what and how they worked. Even still, I was excited and decide to go through a trial run.It has been a while and its very raw…:) Just couldn’t help myself, I had to give it a go!
It has been a long time since I created any videos, and I am feeling edgy and want to start back again. I wanted to share this video with you as it made me feel quite inspired and has me already writing down ideas. I hope you find this interesting and inspiring as I do, enjoy.

Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People is a two-hour documentary film and multimedia project that explores the ways black communities have learned to use the medium of photography to construct political, aesthetic and cultural representations of themselves and their world. I found this to be quite interesting and wanted to share. These are just snippets of the documentary. Enjoy.
