I am a photographer and filmmaker with a Bachelors degree in Film and Video obtained from Georgia State University. I have a passion for creating visual stories using key principles of photography and cinema. My goal is to inspire individuals to critically think and form their own interpretations after internalizing my work. I set out to create my own lane of art while paying homage to the greats that have come before me such as Oscar Micheaux, Gordon Parks, Steven Spielberg, Spike Lee, and Stanley Kubrick. I am forever an observer of the world and utterly fascinated by the purity and rawness of the human psyche. I'm creatively diverse earning publications in poetry, creative writing and photography; being confined to one form of expression isn't an option.

Film (short) by Imprint Studios, LLC (Horror and Thriller) Director Some things aren’t what they appear to be, and the community of Ark Ridge is a place where that is a true reality. After an expected pregnancy, Lee and Patricia Jones decide to take things a little further for their upcoming addition and future. In the process they find what appears to be the perfect place to do that. But they quickly realize that all that glitters isn’t gold. There is an evil that resides in the community in the form of two cold blooded killers, an elderly veteran with PTSD and his protégé as well as his niece, an innocent looking nine year old girl. But it turns out that they are only the tangible presence within Ark Ridge. There is another. An Alpha, a mysterious being that watches over the community who makes himself known when needed.
