I love the support and celebration of being in the SWIFT village. I say village – because we are always looking out for each other. I look forward to sharing my milestones with the SWIFT community on my industry growth. I cannot wait to produce fruit for my fellow Swifties to enjoy because there is enough crown for everyone.

There really aren’t rules to being creative.

Some ideas come about when I talk to myself, observe people and settings, or in a conversation with someone. Hotel Earth, my latest animation project which speaks into the context of our soul mission, was born from a conversation I was having with a friend. It’s tricky, but learning to listen in the moment plays a huge role in my creative landing.
Interviewing Lupita Nyong’o for Queen of Kwate, and Ntate John Kani for Black Panther was electric in that particular moment in time. Working with Embeth Davidtz who played `Miss Honey’ from Matilda are some notable highlights in the journey of my career. I am still growing in my career and cannot wait to explore the possibilities.

Including myself I have 4 muses. Charlize Theron is the reason why I pursued acting and voice over work. (2) Issa Rae is self empowered and has accomplished so much as a film and television creator, and Jessica Alba, because she does cool projects.(3) She is exclusive and I like that. Her work ethic speaks more for her.

I’m currently on a script based on a unique concept titled Star Dust. It is a magical and whimsical feature film which I hope will make it on Netflix, Amazon, Showmax and especially Disney Plus.
