So I began my career in media while at Spelman College. I had a few internships throughout college but my biggest opportunity came my Junior year when I got the chance to work for Cartoon Networks digital team at their headquarters in Atlanta.

After graduation in 2013, I moved to New York to start the NBC Page Program, a post grad program for those wishing to pursue a career in media.

He has sustained our family with this artist life, so I always knew a career in performing arts could be just as realistic as any other career.Read More
