My short film “January 14th” won Best Short and Best Director by the Top Indie Film Awards and was an Official Selection of the Pan African Film Festival, Accra Indiefilm Fest in Ghana, San Francisco Black Film Festival and the Indie Short Fest in Los Angeles, to name a few. I have been a SAGindie Fellowship Finalist, a WeScreenplay Diverse Voices Fellowship Finalist, a Second Rounder in the Austin Film Festival and a semifinalist for both the Sundance Episodic Lab and the MACRO Episodic Lab in partnership with the Black List.
