Where are you from?

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, and still here!

What do you do?

I'm an actor which still feels really new, I've been working professionally for 4 years. I grew up in the arts and always supporting the theater so this career didn't come by surprise. For fulfillment I'd have to saying cooking. I love dinner parties, having people over to eat, I really love cooking for other people it helps that I'm good at it, it has always been a passion... I just never wanted a career in culinary.

What is your dream creative project?

My biggest goal or dream project would be to be the Protagonist in television or film. TV because you're constantly working and improving and you get the attention and time you need from directors and producers. And film because it seems to last for ever. But overall I was attracted particularly to acting because I believe sharing a story heals others, seeing yourself in characters can give comfort to a lot of pain.

What are your go-to tunes for… 

Rising? -  I like any songs that get me hype and get my heart pumping and body dancing. I'm geeking over the new Black Panther album. Shout out to Kendrick! Such an empowering movie. 

Exercising? - Definitely pop music, a little Britney spears can really make you wanna work for a sexy body.

Partying? -  hip-hop, trap, rap.

Where are your favorite places to… 

Eat? -  I have to be biased and say my family's restaurant - Wray's Caribbean and Seafood in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. 

Dance? - I can dance anywhere honestly.

Drink? -  Employees Only and Attaboy. I love a speakeasy. 

Shop? - I have no business shopping but. I love online sales. A lot of Zara. Sometimes Forever 21 has cute things to shoot in. Soho, any where with a sale. And Bershka is an awesome store.

Is there something you really want to do in your city that you haven't yet?

I love nice views, so go up the Empire State, helicopter ride around the city, and go up the Freedom tower.
