It was my honor for a few years to host THE BEST SHORTS, short film competition on BET. It meant much to me to give other indie filmmakers a venue-- and a chance to win money for
their efforts. As an opinionated lifestyles journalist, on-camera talent and writer it was only natural that I would be a
director. My film themes are mostly relationships, self-love and communication in a contemporary pop culture format.
My films have screened and been performed in theaters, museums, galleries
and festivals in London, West Africa, Berlin, South America, the West Indies and throughout the US. It was also a life-changing experience to lead a film expedition to Nollywood, the Nigerian Hollywood, and to shoot
a short film in Germany at the Berlinale Film Festival.
I then went to Germany to shoot Stranded, a 7 minute romantic comedy, and as a grad school project dug into Alicia in Wonderland a crazy sadomasochistic fairytale, and then dared to shoot Afrodite Superstar, an experimental feminist erotica film.
Hopefully, you enjoy my art
