I am a multidisciplinary artist, dancer, educator, and documentarian reimagining futurehistories. My practice emerges from self examination and social documenting, often in the form of speculative portraits, experimental video, and installations.
I graduated from Howard University in 2011 and moved back home to Detroit, where I teach, shoot, wait for the bus, spend time with family, twerk, smoke, dream, read, cast spells, and walk (a lot).
I enjoy speaking publicly about movement, collaboration, ritual, education, and nonlinear temporality. Some former hosts include the Allied Media Conference, Google, Detroit Public Library, Blackstar Film Festival, Detroit Institute of Arts, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Currently googling Black spirituality and intellectualism, low-key US beaches, alternative archives, cheap round trip flights to Lagos, and pay me my rates memes.
