I am the Founder of Bushwick Film Festival (BFF) and MCCG; The Executive Director of OPEN; and I created and host a talk show called Indie Cinema New York on BRIC TV. 

  • Founded in 2007, BFF is hailed as one of Brooklyn’s most celebrated events; recognized for its contribution to the borough’s artistic and economic growth.
  • MCCG—Media, Culture and Communications Group— is a boutique public relations firm that specializes in community initiatives, event producing, media/tv programming, and content management. 
  • OPEN—ODA's Public Engagement in Neighborhoods—is a nonprofit foundation that funds community green space, media and technology, architecture and design and public art projects in underserved areas.
  • ICNY airs on BRIC TV and invites industry leaders to discuss upcoming releases and events. Guests include Oscar Winner Caroline Waterlow (OJ.: Made in America), Oscar Nominee Raoul Peck (I Am Not Your Negro) and Oscar Nominee Sam Pollard ( 4 Little Girls).

I love being involved in the community. I am the co-chair of the Arts & Culture Committee on the Bushwick Community Board and I'm also on the Housing and Land use committee.

I was born in Liberia and my family and I immigrated to the U.S. at the brink of the Liberian Civil war. I attended public school in Newark, NJ where I was awarded a scholarship from the Wight Foundation to attend Blair Academy, one of the top 25 boarding schools in the U.S. I moved on to receive my B.S in Media, Culture, and Communications, from New York University. 

I love living a creative and healthy life, sharing stories and inspiring others. Currently, I live in Brooklyn with my fiancé  :).
