Tell us about your latest project:
One Size Fits All – a one act play about women of different sizes and shapes trying on clothes in a department store fitting room. Out of frustration, the women break the fourth wall and confide in the audience about their experiences with insecurity, body shaming , objectification and finding the right outfit.
What excites you about being a part of the Downtown Urban Arts Festival?
I’m happy to be a part of the festival with my work for the third year in a row. DeVante and Marc are great and the crew working are supportive and excellent.
What’s your upcoming project after the Festival?
I will continue acting, writing, producing and directing a comedic web series I created, called Brand New Me. I also just finished writing my first musical.
