Michael Paul Britto: “This Little Word Of Mine” Rehearsal, The Kitchen

I have the distinct pleasure to call multi-media visual artist Michael Paul Britto a colleague, collaborator, and a friend.  He is always up to something amazing, re-contextualizing pop culture and the black experience to get audiences to re-think challenging subject matter and open up dialogue around race and identity.  In This Little Word of Mine, […]

The Magnet Theater: Griot Show, et al

Keeping the spirit of the word “griot” alive, The Griot Show is a bi-monthly storytelling show featuring black comedians, musicians, artists, poets, educators, and elders from around NYC. Hosted by Alexis Lambright, artists have the opportunity to share stories from the black experience, often with a comedic turn and if they’re a griot worth their […]

FUNKumentary & Gentleman’s Day

Many moons ago, I had the distinct pleasure of producing, shooting, and editing a documentary for a dear friend and extraordinary musician, Isaac Sinclair.  We attended high school together but lost touch as folks from high school do, only to cross paths nearly a decade later in our professional, creative careers. (aka we were at […]

Samora Pinderhughes, MOMENTUM

Absolutely without a doubt, Samora Pinderhughes is a star.  Incredibly talented pianist and songwriter, highly cerebral, and dedicated to the liberation of all free peoples, it’s hard not to jump on board immediately when you get a call to collaborate with him on a project. And that’s exactly what I did. Initially slated as a […]

Jazz Night in America: Allison Miller

I am incredibly fortunate to have worked on an episode for the NPR/WBGO collaboration, Jazz Night in America, a radio program hosted by Christian McBride.  Working with Allison over the 7 month production was such a pleasure not only because she’s an incredible musician but also for her perfect sense of humor.  Major bonus? She’s […]

‘How to Watch Under the Cherry Moon…,’ on The Root

I’m published! On The Root!  Peep the byline. How to watch Under the Cherry Moon… In advance of the screening at World Cafe Live in Philly, I was asked to do a write-up with our press partner, The Root.  So honored I get to flex my writing chops and my purple muscles.  Now all I […]

screen/play Presents: SOLD OUT Screening of Under the Cherry Moon!

Completely honored to help bring to life a screening of one my absolute favorite (Prince) films: Under the Cherry Moon!  It’s an ego-driven, aesthetic masterpiece, terrible acting and all, that does not get the respect in the Prince canon (or film history, overall) that it deserves.  With the Comedy of Errors Summer we experienced, the […]

Feature Film! Bait & Tackle

I’m excited (and delayed) to announce that I am producing my first feature film! After an auspicious meeting over classic rock, funk, and late-night barbeque’d meats at a mutual friend’s Memorial Day function, Director James Evans asked me to join him and Amy Gaipa, one of the film’s producers, for a casual follow-up conversation. A […]

Firelight Media & Starbucks

In April of this year, two young black men walked in to a Starbucks in Philadelphia for a meeting with a colleague and shortly thereafter, without precedence or provocation, were unjustly removed from the premises by police officers. In response to the unjust, racially biased encounter, Starbucks responded by scheduling a (voluntary) national (half-day) training […]
