I am a first time documentary film maker using my skills as a Clinical Psychologist to tell stories that are meaningful and teach compassion through understanding the history of individuals and communities. My current project, Back to Natural: A Documentary Film, looks at the relationship members of the African Diaspora have with their hair. The documentary looks at issues of identity, and the way in which culture, history, and family relationships can help or hinder our ability to be authentic.
