What I Do >>>
I make words twerk.
I am a writer, director, composer, actress, dancer, singer,
tennis lover (vamos Rafa!) and avid traveler born in
St. Catherine, Jamaica.
For me, theater is the greatest art form and
purest reflection of the human experience.
I believe in magical realism and that our
greatest beauty lives in the ordinary.
My work centers the voices of women and marginalized peoples
with an emphasis on the immigrant experience.
I also value irreverence - because I think we need it.
My adventures as an artist have taken me
from pantomimes in the Caribbean
to stages in Chicago, screens in Los Angeles
and finally to New York City where I discovered
a passion for directing and stumbled into the
musical theater world.
My first musical, FORA, was selected
to the New York Musical Festival and awarded a Eugene O'Neill Residency.
My second musical, Speechless, is being developed
in the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop where it was
twice featured in the BMI Industry Showcase.
I'm still learning.
I am a proud member of SAG-AFTRA,
Actors Equity Association, The Dramatists Guild,
and the BMI-Lehman Engel Musical Theater Advanced Workshop.
I am also the founder of Inkubator,
a not-for-profit arts organization
dedicated to the advancement of
women writers of color.
